Boarding The Ships
The Slave Boats Went From Europe, To Africa, To America, And Returned Back To Europe With Goods.
Sickness And Death
The Average Life Loss Of Slaves Is Between 10-20%
(10% meaning 1,000,000, 20% meaning 2,000,000)
To Many, Death Was A Beter Option Than A Life In Chains. Those Who Failed To Successfully Kill Themselves Were Severely Punished.
