About the Webinar:

Indentured servitude was of immense value to colonial America. Through the headright system, it allowed for the transportation of men and women who were either unable to afford or were actually unwilling to travel to the colonies and settle in a land desperately in need of people. Basically, human labor was leased and was extremely popular for both the profiting wealthy person providing the transportation and the servant interested in changing their circumstances in America. Prior to the Revolution indentured servitude accounted for half of the immigration to the colonies.
