In Southern Colonies, there were still lots of slaves for growing tobacco. This tobacco plantation brought lots of money to Southern people. In opposition, there were less, or no slavery in Northern and Middle Colonies. Even though they had slaves, they were more likely behaved like family members. Some of them could have their own families. In Northern region, mostly Partisans were living there. And in Mid colonies, representative residents were the Quakers, who believed everyone should be treated equally. Eventually, this different belief had also effected upcoming American society. In American Civil War, people were divided into two different groups. The North confederacy, who were against the slavery and the South confederacy, who were agreeing with slavery.

At that time tobacco was easy to grow, but difficult to grow. This was mainly used by indentured servants to collect their money. However, the purchase price of tobacco and potatoes was unreasonably cheap. So they were dissatisfied that the goods, such as clothing, furniture, and liquor, were sold at unreasonably high prices. Large farmers who used slave labor occupied most of the political power and good land. They built mansions and lived like nobles. However, slaves were able to live a little more freely than before. They could have their own farms or save money. Furthermore, this culture had a great influence on the Civil War. A group opposed to slavery or a group favoring slavery.

I disagree with his opinion that major shareholders treat slaves as part of their families. Of course, it is true that they gave the slaves a little more freedom, but the major shareholders still passed them. However, I agree with the opinion that such autonomy influenced the Civil War in the future. The concepts of money imposed on slaves have made the slave self grow.

Tobacco is one of the most important cash crop in American farming. When Europeans first introduced new plants to the rest of the world, it became so popular to the people. It quickly spread throughout the civilized world and became a foundation for the growth of the American economy. Tobacco farming required intensive labour. Increase in the Tobacco business led to an increase in the slave trade. Colonists used not only native Americans but also Africans slaves. So ever since tobacco&sugar business grew, slave trade also grew as well

Jaeho gave us good correlation between tobacco plantation and slavery. It is true that they needed more ans more people as their plantation got bigger. Additionally as their land got expanded, increase of the number of slaves was also inevitable. It would have been tragic time period for Native Americans and Africans but because of their labor, the speed of America's economy growth was able to accelerate.

During this time period, tobacco farming was the most important and the main resource for Southern colonies in America. It was one of their main money making the crop and they grew them in the large plantation. Since plantations were big and required lots of workers for farming, many African American slaves were brought to the plantation to farm for Southern Colonies. Southern Colonies made a huge profit out of tobacco plantation and even though they had lots of workers, they did not have to pay the worker since they are slaves.

I understand what Joon Ji mean by tobacco was easy but couldn't really understand what she mean by grow difficult to grow. Tobacco was sold a good amount of price even though it went down later as the time passed. Many farmers did have difficulties with financial because of the price drop, but they were still liveable and made a profit out of it. That is why they continued the tobacco farming.
