    sabotaging was commonly used when the slaves were worked to hard. Sometimes they would fake illness or break tools to slow production.

    The most common form of resistance available to slaves was what is known as “day-to-day” resistance, or small acts of rebellion. This form of resistance included sabotage, such as breaking tools or setting fire to buildings. Striking out at a slave owner's property was a way to strike at the man himself, albeit indirectly.

    Both men and women faked being ill to gain relief from their harsh working conditions. Women may have been able to feign illness more easily--they were expected to provide their owners with children, and at least some owners would have wanted to protect the childbearing capacity of their female slaves. Slaves could also play on their masters' and mistresses' prejudices by seeming to not understand instructions. When possible, slaves could also decrease their pace of work.
