1. 6 states of NE- Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island,  Massachusetts.  2. Bacon’s Rebellion (1696)- He was an upper middle class elected assembly man and he  realized that the indentured servants had a valid argument by being mad at the rich  white men.  He funneled their anger towards the Indians.   The indentured servants were  upset because all the rich white men.  It opens up western territory and encourages US  to expand and take over Indian territory.   3. Slavery vs. indentured servitude-  Slavery is for life and indentured servitude is only for a  period of time until the debt is paid off. Indentured servants were often prisoners of war  or paying off debt and didn’t make their ‘owners’ much money. Slaves were property and  were money makers.  4. Gradual Manumission- this was the process of slowly freeing the slaves.  It happened in  the late 1700’s aftermath of American Revolution and it started in NE because slavery  was not as necessary there.  They realized that they were fighting for freedom from GB  and that they were slaves to GB.   5. Cotton Gin-Invented by Eli Whitley in 1793.  It increased the American economy greatly.  It makes short staple cotton profitable because it can now be grown in a lot of places  and harvested correctly.  It has a lot of seeds so people were not efficient at harvesting  it.  It takes a lot of man power and revitalizes the institution of slavery.  Southern states  previously relied on tobacco & rice production & cheap labor but land was exhausted  and slavery was declining, had to find a new ‘cash crop’.  6. 1617-Tobacco was brought to the US in this year by John Rolfe.  This was a huge cash  crop for the US Jamestown, VI.  Slaves were needed to make tobacco and thousands of  slaves were brought to the US.  This made the Chesapeake prosper.  7. Trail of Tears- 1838-1839 the route that the Cherokee Indians were forced to take on  their mandatory relocation to the western US.  This is important because it is a symbol of  how the US walked all over the Indians and treated them terribly. 8. 1619-year that indentured Africans  were introduced to the US (Jamestown) Colonists  exchanged Africans for food. Face of indentured servitude/slavery changed from Native  Americans to Africans 9. Monogenesis- means single origin. 1700’s in US, everyone comes from the same place  (Adam & Eve) all are God’s children and should be treated the same. Ideologies were  confined to church sector but anti-slavery ideologies soon became secularized (political)

    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.
