    Google Docs: Ch 11-12

    Although slaves are very much stereo typically portrayed to work in the countryside cotton fields of the south, some were situated in cities. The conditions for slaves in cities were very different from that of the countryside, to say the least. For example, slaves in cities mingled easily with free blacks and other whites of the surrounding area, whereas such conversations were nearly unheard of in plantation conditions. Masters here had direct control over their slaves, and letting one talk to a free black was considered to be dangerous. This close control that marked a distinct line, or more of a vast chasm, between slavery and freedom was something city slaves were also spared from. Because their masters had little control over what they did during the day, slavery was almost being free. In terms of labor, they also had access to different types of jobs such as driving wagons, and working at docks and construction sites. Meanwhile, the traditional intensive, physical labor was more of a reality for most countryside slaves who often picked cotton, drove oxen, cared for the master’s children, cooked in the “Big House,” etc. In conclusion, although still enslaved, and property to their white masters, the lives of city slaves were much better than the suffering realities of the countryside for other slaves.
