A Cabinetmaker's Apprentice In A Busy Shop

Record #:
In 1839, Thomas Day, the master cabinetmaker from Milton in Caswell County, acquired ten-year-old Archibald Clark as an apprentice. State law required that all orphans and children of unmarried parents be bound to a master or mistress through indenture to the age of twenty-one. Marshall describes what Archibald's life would have been like during his indenture period.
