FC: TRANS-ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE
3: The African people were kidnapped from there villages by the white people. They were tied up and bags put over their heads so that they did not know what was happening to them. They were marched for miles to the shoreline and when the bags were removed they saw what they thought were houses floating on the water. They never before saw a ship and were scared when they were herded aboard. They were exposed to diseases that they had never had before and alot died from them. Also, the conditions on the ships were terrible. Men, women and children were packed so tightly together that they could hardly move. Everywhere around them people were vomiting and defecating. There was no escaping from the ships, because on both sides had nets to catch anyone that tried to jump off. Almost half of the slaves died before they reached land. Then when they did reach land they were herded like animals into pens to wait for these white men to look them over to see if they were fit to do the work they wanted from them. They were separated from their families and everything they ever knew. They were treated like property and not a living breathing thing with feelings.
