Slavery in both places was about the economy, farms, and tariffs. All of these have something to do with slavery and the civil war.

Both South Carolina and the Chesapeake were affected by these Barbadians ways of slave holding. In the Chesapeake, newly arrived African slaves often were put to work on the outskirts of the plantation, which were called quarters. They were sometimes moved closer towards the middle of the plantation once they learned some English and the routines of growing tobacco in America. Tobacco originated in the Americas, but was also grown in some parts of Africa, so Chesapeake planters often used their laborers' expertise for growing their crops. The majority of these laborers were men.
Charlestown was founded by planters whom brought along their slaves from the overpopulated sugar growing island Barbados.  African slaves were difficult to acquire in north america because of the Caribbean's voracious appetite for slave labor. The african population growth in north america started off very slowly. “In 1625 their were only 23 africans present in virginia.” 25 years later there were only 950, 3-4% of the colonies population, and they were still treated in the same manner as an indentured servant. The main reason behind slaveries growth in america was economy based.
The American Civil war To what extent was the American Civil War effective? Melissa Horacek – Year Eleven Modern History Melissa Horacek – Year Eleven Modern History The Civil War, is a war between civilians, began due to the fear of the abolishment of slavery.

In the early as the 15 century, England passed from raising sheep and producing wool, an agricultural activity, to manufacturing cloth. This signaled the beginning of capitalist production. It is in capitalist production that we can locate the basic cause of the slave trade. The slave ship sailed from the home country with a cargo of manufactured goods. These were exchanged at a profit on the coast of Africa for Negroes, who were traded on the plantations, at another profit, in exchange for a cargo of colonial produce to be taken back to the home country.
The different crops and their distinctive patterns of labor organization gave rise to several other important distinctions as well. Tobacco was the first plantation crop in North America. English settlers in the Chesapeake region recognized tobacco's profitable potential in the early seventeenth century. They built their first plantations using the labor of British indentured servants rather than African slaves. But in the late 1600s the market for English servants dried up, and Virginia planters turned instead to slavery.

This shows that the slaves had absolutely no access to freedom to the slave codes another way that the slaves resisted was that they faked an illness, so they can get revenge to their masters on page 437 it gives a specific explanation on how they faked their illness. It says "For the most part enslaved people resisted slavery by working slowly or pretending to be ill. Occasionally resistance took more active forms, such as setting fire to a plantation building or breaking tools.
However, many southern states found ways around the laws to disenfranchise the black populations. They did this by introducing a ‘Grandfather Clause’, which is that only people whose grandfather voted, gave them the ability to vote. Also literacy test was another method used, which in most ways wasn’t made fairly and even well educated people were disenfranchised and not allowed to vote.
