1: What is a slave? A slave is a person who is owned by and forced to work for another person. They have no choice, money, or freedom. They were beaten senseless for working to slow, not doing as their asked, or even just trying to run away from the evil people who kept them imprisoned in their own personal Hell.
2: Housing Slaves were relocated to plantations when they were bought at the auctions. Some plantation owners provided housings for them others had to build their own. The ones that made their houses made them like those in Africa. They were very cramped with at least 10 people living in one hut.
3: Clothing The slaves were also provided with clothing. Men were given a shirt, pants, shoes, and three items of underwear. Women were given a dress, a pair of shoes, and also three items of underwear. They did not fit very well, some were too big while others were too small. They were made out of very coarse material.
4: Free Time Most slaves worked all day. Some slave owners gave them either one day off a month or Sundays off as a rest day. On their days off they would tend to their huts, make pots and pans, relaxed. Some slave owners let them have a plot of land for them to grow their own food.
