declining death rates made slaves more profitable than indentured servants

Slaves were property and bought or sold. Indentured servants were people who signed a contract stating they would work for 7 years. Often they wouldn't finish the 7 years and disappear into the population. Slaves on the other hand were easy to find because anyone who was black was a slave.

They were not the same. Indentured servants were to serve 7 years, but often they left before they finished their time. They could blend in so it made it hard to find them, but any person who was black was a slave and needed a pass to leave the plantation. Indentured servants were paid and free after 7 years. Slaves were never paid and were considered property.
