Indentured servitude is a form of labor in which a person (an indenture) agrees to work without salary for a specific number of years through a contract for eventual compensation or debt repayment.
Go back in history with us over 400 years (1607 AD) to the 1st established English Colony in America, Virginia when the 1st system for the Institution of Indentured Servitude was attempted and failed in the New World but did succeed during the 1st Period of this launched institution that began in 1620 AD. From our formative years, however, we all learned that these Indentured Servants came from different parts of Europe to settle in the New World; but little did we know this was the 1st European Slave Colony in Virginia that lasted until 1619 AD.
