    1.Many immigrants came to America seeking greater economic opportunity, while some, such as the Pilgrims in the early 1600s, arrived in search of religious freedom. 2.Indentured servants originally came to America after King George passed the Royal Act of Freedom and Advancement (RAFA). This act made it illegal for a person to receive housing, clothing or other non-monetary goods as payment for services. Although RAFA was presented as a act for the lower class people, it was really only made so that nobles could stop paying so much to feed their servants and instead give them extremely low wages. Because of this change many indentured servants decided to come to america where it was still legal and acceptable to work for non-monetary goods. The only problem with this move was that their new masters in North America provided a very low standard of living for their servants in exchange for a much harder job. Unlike their servant jobs of cooking, cleaning, and sheep herding that they were used to in Europe, the servants that came to North America were put to work as lumberjacks, road builders, and other extremely difficult tasks. This eventually led to the Servant Revolt of 1606. During this revolt most servants were either killed or made it back to Europe where they were forced to work for money. After the colonials grew tired of doing all the hard work they decided to try and get the servants back. It was not until 1612 that the Dutch presented the idea of capturing and selling slaves to the colonies. Through this new slave trade, African slaves were brought along the "Middle Passage" where they were treated poorly and fed a diet of mice and sea water. When slaves started arriving in 1619 the economy of the south experience a relative Golden Age where they were able to kill or get rid of their servants and acquire slaves at a very low cost. These slaves were much more economical because they did not feel the need to pay, feed, or treat them as replaceable farm equipment. 3.Slavery in America began when the first African slaves were brought to the North American colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619, to aid in the production of such lucrative crops as tobacco. Slavery was practiced throughout the American colonies in the 17th and 18th centuries, and African-American slaves helped build the economic foundations of the new nation. The invention of the cotton gin in 1793 solidified the central importance of slavery to the South’s economy. By the mid-19th century, America’s westward expansion, along with a growing abolition movement in the North, would provoke a great debate over slavery that would tear the nation apart in the bloody American Civil War (1861-65). Though the Union victory freed the nation’s 4 million slaves, the legacy of slavery continued to influence American history, from the tumultuous years of Reconstruction (1865-77) to the civil rights movement that emerged in the 1960s, a century after emancipation.
