By accident, I did not include the fact that there were a number of forts off the coast connected to European countries that shuttled slaves from the interior into boats that were voyaging to South America and also North America mainly the southeast.The boats also carried peanuts, collards and a few other items. People were chained to the floor.

Our course taught that slavery was invented in Africa.....but only in small numbers. Europeans took a native practice that was horrible and expanded it into new land for hundreds of years with millions of victims from Senegal and Sierra leon to Angola
