A hotspot for ‘indentured servants’

A hotspot for ‘indentured servants’

Texas offered a new beginning for many people coming to America. There was much land and other rich natural resources available to those who could wrestle a living by using hand tools and animal power. A labor vacuum was created by having so many materials and so little human labor to exploit it. Into this void were swept hundreds of thousands of people, some voluntary, some against their will, but all contributing to the making of America and Texas. How this labor shortage was solved impacts almost every American and Texan, today.
