Native American

Indians

also

died from

the harsh

working

conditions

imposed on

them by

the

Europeans.


The deaths

of so many

Native American

Indians created

the need for

a work force.


Europeans decided to use Africans

to replace a dying American

Indian population.


Europeans

removed

millions of

Africans

between

the 1500s

and the

1800s.


Africans were

stripped of

their language,

culture, and

freedom. They

were forced to

labor under

brutal conditions

in plantations

in the Americas.


Enslaved Africans were usually captured

by warring ethnic groups or tribes and

traded to European and

American slave traders.


Slaves were traded in exchange for

guns and other goods.


The “Middle Passage” was the

slave’s voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas.


Many slaves

died during the

Middle Passage

because of the

terrible

conditions

on the

ships. Slaves

were crowded

together in

small, unsanitary

spaces.


Once in the Americas, African slaves

encountered brutality and cruelty on

plantations in the Americas.


Life expectancy on sugar plantations

was low due to the brutal working

conditions.


The Transatlantic Slave Trade was a

tragic period in world history.
