Slaves were known mainly as working in the fields. But it wasnt until cotton became popular (1800's) that they began that. They were often used to cook for their masters, complete house work, feed animals on the farm, keep land clean, hunt for food, gather fire wood. Mainly anything that there master wanted them to do
