  • Slavery in America began when the first African slaves were brought to the North American colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619
  • Economy
  • Slaves were taken from their homes in Africa and then put on a boat to be sold at auctions where they would be put to work for the rest of their lives and if they didn't listen they would be put to death/beaten/put back up for auction.
  • Middle passage
  • Slaves would work in the fields to harvest crops that would be sold, bringing the land owners money. Which they could then use to buy more slaves or goods.
  • Colonies
  • From 1700 to 1775 the output of the thirteen colonies increased 12 fold, giving the colonies an economy about 30% the size of Britain's at the time of independence. Population growth was responsible for over three-quarters of the economic growth of the British American colonies. The free white population had the highest standard of living in the world.
  • African slaves were then traded for raw materials, which were returned to Europe to complete the "Triangular Trade". The Middle Passage was the stage of the triangular trade in which millions of Africans were shipped to the New World as part of the Atlantic slave trade.
