Always a man and considered a skilled craftsman, Bricklayers often learned their trade at an early age from other slaves. In addition to understanding mortar, they understood the brickmaking process, temperature, composite and firing times, and often oversaw groups of slaves who would make bricks onsite. Bricklayers were also expected to do much of the plaster work around the plantation.
