The English settlers then adapted to the need by using the indentured servants (Tindall & Shi, 2016).

    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.
