missionaries were sent to Africa to spread Christianity to the people.
let us spread our religion to the Africans.
Soon after the missionaries were replaced by traders who saw Africans as slaves and began to trade them for money and used them as workers.
"How much for one slave?" "50 pieces of sliver"
Millions of Africans were captured from their homes and packed into ships with terrible conditions. They were all brought to the Americas and forced into slavery.
Slavery went on for 246 years, in the late 1800's the North stated to become more industrialised and needed less slaves, the South became more dependent on slaves.
As the north became more industrialized they also leaned towards abolitionist ideas since in the 1865 compromise Southerners forced all citizens to hunt for runaway slaves.
"Have you heard about the 1865 compromise?" "i have indeed, it is such an outrage!"
Due to these differences the north and south went into a civil war. The north fighting against slavery with African American soldiers, they were promised freedom if they fought for the north, and the south for slavery.
