  • A Place Apart–Bound Labor in Virginia's Upper Northern Neck March 10, 2024  2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Historic Christ Church & Museum, 420 Christ Church Rd, Weems, VA 22576, USA

    Bound laborers such as white servants and enslaved Africans were essential in early English Virginia, supplying the necessary labor to produce profit from tobacco for the colony’s landowners. This was even more important in Virginia’s “upper” Northern Neck region given that a less desirable strain of tobacco, oronoco, was grown there. Join Dr. Steven Harris-Scott as he explores how this difference had significant implications on the pattern of Northern Neck bound labor in the 18th century.
    Dr. Steven Harris-Scott holds a PhD in History from George Mason University and an MA in History from the University of New Orleans. He has presented his work at numerous conferences, particularly the Virginia Forum where he is also a member of its Board of Directors and as of 2023, its president.
