Apprentices, Indentured Servants, and German Redemptioners; White Servitude in America

This lecture will examine the many different forms of servitude and indentureship in early America.

What You Will Learn

An estimated one-half of early immigrants came to America against their own will; some as indentured servants. Our ancestors arrived in many different ways as their lives touched the early colonies. Some voyages were planned, many were not.
