The presence of women could also help establish families and create a sense of stability in the colony.

    Who were the servants who would work for someone to pay for the trip to America.  It was very hard work that they were required to do.

    • A.

      Indentured Servants

    • B.

      Chattel Slavery

    Correct Answer
    A. Indentured Servants
    Explanation
    Indentured servants were individuals who agreed to work for a specified period of time in exchange for passage to America. They were typically poor Europeans who could not afford the cost of the journey themselves. The work they were required to do was often physically demanding and labor-intensive. Unlike chattel slavery, indentured servitude was a temporary arrangement, with the servant eventually gaining their freedom after fulfilling their contractual obligations.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which group became free after 4-7 years?

    • A.

      Indentured Servants

    • B.

      Chattel Slavery

    Correct Answer
    A. Indentured Servants
    Explanation
    Indentured servants became free after 4-7 years. Indentured servitude was a labor system in which individuals signed a contract to work for a specific period of time in exchange for passage to a new country or other benefits. After fulfilling their contract, indentured servants were granted their freedom and could pursue their own interests. This system was common in colonial America, particularly during the 17th and 18th centuries, and provided a means for individuals to start a new life in exchange for temporary servitude.

  • 11. 

    Which group was never free?

    • A.

      Indentured Servants

    • B.

      Chattel Slavery

    Correct Answer
    B. Chattel Slavery
    Explanation
    Chattel slavery is the correct answer because unlike indentured servants who had a limited period of servitude, chattel slaves were considered property and had no rights or freedom. They were bought, sold, and owned for life, with no possibility of gaining their freedom. Chattel slavery was a system that dehumanized and oppressed individuals, denying them basic human rights and perpetuating a cycle of bondage.
