165 Words1 Page

Slaves are people who are owned by farmers to their work on plantations and have no rights at all. These people are bought from the action market and the owners have the right to control the amount of work, food, and beatings they receive. Slavery started even earlier in Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Greek empire, and many more empires. Later, European conquistadors conquered South America and North America and enslaving the local Indian Americans. Then by the 18th century, all Indian Americans slowly started to stop and used Black people as slaves. African Americans were mistreated because of their skin color and because they didn’t follow Christianity. In 1808, bringing slaves became illegal and by the 1850 most northern states outlawed slavery.
