Getting the Work Done: Agricultural Labor in North Carolina

Record #:
Over the years, three groups have farmed the land. The first group was subsistence farmers, who raised animals and crops for their own needs. The second group, the planters, saw farming as a way to make money. The last group did not own the land, but worked it, and included indentured servants, slaves, and tenant farmers.
