Reply To: Indentured Servitude


Let me add that many of the participants in Bacon’s Rebellion of 1676 were former indentured servants who were unhappy with the political situation in VA, as Kevin suggested, and while they were not promised land, they could squat on it, and many did.

And, while not an indentured servant in the VA model, Benjamin Franklin was indentured to his brother. He later broke those indentures and ran away to Philadelphia.
