Question:

Was sharecropping beneficial to freedmen?

Answer:

Sharecropping allowed freedmen to work as tenant farmers and exchange their labor for the use of house, land, implements, and sometimes seed and fertilizer. Sharecroppers agreed to work on shares, often giving half to two-thirds to the landlord.
