Respond to each question below in your own words and in complete sentences. For each response you must include one image that helps support your answer. Why did slavery start in the colonies? Slavery in America began when the first African slaves were brought to the North American colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619, to aid in the production of such lucrative crops as tobacco. How were slaves brought to the colonies? African slabes were to the English Colonies for a few reasons. First is that the Native American's that the English enslaved were dieing off due to the diseases that the English brought to the America's. Also they were brought because the English needed workers to do plantation work. What types of jobs did slaves do in each colonial region? New England, Middle and the South? The slaves in the New England would do house work. The Middle region slaves would help with house work and some crops that their owners had. The Southern slaves would usually work in the fields harvesting and planting crops such as cotton and tobacco.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
