FC: the horrors behind the slave trade!

1: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade began around the mid-fifteenth century when Portuguese interests in Africa moved away from the fabled deposits of gold to a much more readily available commodity; slaves.

2: Why did the Trade Begin? Expanding European empires in the New World lacked one major resource -- a work force. Africans, on the other hand, were excellent workers: they often had experience of agriculture --

3: and keeping cattle, they were used to a tropical climate, resistant to tropical diseases, and they could be "worked very hard" on plantations or in mines.

4: What was the Triangular Trade? | The first stage of the Triangular Trade involved taking manufactured goods from Europe to Africa | The second stage of the Triangular Trade (the middle passage) involved shipping the slaves to the Americas. | The third, and final, stage of the Triangular Trade involved the return to Europe with the produce from the slave-labor plantations

6: the conditions on the ship | In the ship's hold, the slaves were chained ankle to wrist, with barely any place to move. | In the worse case, the captains did not provide any kinds of hygiene.

7: Suicide attempts occurred daily and in painfully cruel ways. | Food was a very big problem for the slaves and the captains. | Diseases were very common in boats, they were transmitted easily

8: the packing of all the slaves. they had no room to even move to turn on there sides | they were piled together

9: they were taken away from there home to be treated like aniamls!
