History of Slavery

Why did the colonists choose to use the African Americans as slaves?

The Hsitory of Slavery

-most were farmers-skilled artists-more immune to diseases

Slaves were traded for food and other supplies

First Black Indentured Slaves-Jamestown, Virginia-1619-Slavery continued through the 17th and 18th century

The very first slaves were criminals and people who could not pay debt

Slavery followed the development of farming. Farming gave people an opportunity to put their prisoners of war to work for them.

-first slaves were brought on a Dutch ship-docked at Point Comfort-this served as a checkpoint for slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master."-Ayn Rand

-1820 Missouri Compromise-No more Slavery in the Northern Territory

-Many Africans were Islam-Slaves were converted into Christianity-were not allowed to pracitce their own religion

In 1854, the Missouri Compromise was repealed by the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Three years later the Missouri Compromise was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott decision, which ruled that Congress did not have the authority to prohibit slavery in the territories.

-Abraham Lincoln-Civil War-Slavery is completely abolished in 1865-Thriteenth Amendment

1808 Congress bans importation of slaves

In U.S. history during 1861-1865, there was conflict between the Northern states and the Southern states and they formed the Confederacy. It is generally known in the South as the War between the States and is also called the War of the Rebellion (the official Union designation), the War of Secession, and the War for Southern Independence. The name Civil War, although much criticized as inexact, is most widely accepted. This whole war was about slaves. The North was agianst it but the Sout was all for it. In the end Slavery was outlawed and every man was free.
