The late 1800s and early 1900s were a tumultuous time of technological innovations, cultural diffusion, and overall growth. The comprehensive interjection of the institution of indentured servitude into 19th century society included main features such as contracts and new governmental establishments, had economic and demographic causes and consequences, and resulted in large scale global economic change.
Several main features acted as the foundation for the practice indentured servitude, including contracts, legislative protections, and government offices. While indentured servants were not slaves, document 1 points out that “they were raised, not without effort, like recruits for military service” (doc. 1). The author of document 1’s point of view is that while indentured servants did not migrate voluntarily, they were not slaves. This point of view exhibits to readers how indentured servitude often lies in a moral gray area. According to document 7, indentured servants were contractually obligated in British Guiana to work for five years with the cultivation of manufacture of anything on their master’s plantation, and in exchange, servants would receive Sundays and authorized holidays off, one shilling for each days work (for able bodied adult men), rations, medicine, and a home for the emigrant and his family, and if he worked for ten years, the emigrant and his family would receive free passage back to India. The British Guiana Indenture Agreement of 1895 created this contract and likely offered its signers certain protections. Countries created some governmental bodies to deal with the influx of indentured servants. In document 8, an indentured servant writes to the Office of the Protector of Immigrants in South Africa to complain about his harsh living conditions and the criteria from the contract that his master has broken, such as working on sundays and overly extensive hours. The author of the letter, Ramana, has a point of view that he is being unfairly treated because his master has broken the terms of his contract. Ramana is obviously educated enough to understand the contract and its provisions. This is sharp contrast from the disability many slaves had to communicate their issues because of their lack of education. Ramana’s perspective encourages readers to see indentured servitude and the relationship between servant and master in a negative light.
The size and scale that landowners utilized indentured servants translates into many consequences of this global shift. Landowners were drawn to using indentured servants because a sharp increase in demand for their crops meant that they needed more labor. In places where slavery was illegal, indentured servitude seemed especially like the most lucrative option. The editorial of document 2 postulated that labor demands would...
