8. What would some field slaves do in order to do as little work as possible, and why could they get away with it? 9. What or who were the “paddy rollers”? Explain. Paddy Rollers were white men who were hired to patrol the roads and woods surrounding the plantations to catch any slave who might be going to a gathering or trying to escape. 10. Which night did the slaves go out for meetings and why did they choose that one? 11. List the four “holidays” slaves were allowed to celebrate ad masters eased the rules for them. A. Christmas B. Good friday C. Independence day D. End of cotton-chopping season 12. In one word, what was “....the more constant tool that slaves used to resist the spiritual brutality slavery…”? 13. In your own words, share information and the page(s) where it is found that you found surprising or disturbing in chapter 4. The page that I found the most surprising in chapter 4 is page 110 because, it is relieving to know that slaves can take a break on certain holidays that the slave owner allows them to celebrate.

    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.
