Field Hand/Laborer

Field Hand/Laborer

Also called a Field Slave in later documents, these were the jobs of both men and women. Occupying the lowest status on the plantation, laborers performed the most grueling tasks and lived in the worst conditions, even as enslaved men were often appraised the highest of all slaves on the plantation.
