Join this widespread exchange of animals, plants, culture, and slaves between Europe and America!This will be following the voyage to the Americas by Christopher Columbus in 1492! With all of this exchanging of goods, there will bad things too. These horrible things are called diseases.
The Triangular Trade!
This new trade we will be doing is a trade among three regions (The Americas,Europe, and Africa)!
The Middle Trade!
The Middle Passage was the stage of the triangular trade in which millions of people from Africa were shipped to the New World as part of the Atlantic slave trade.
Africans vs Natives...
We chose Africans over The Natives because Africans and Europeans shared immunities to Old World diseases. Also, we tried to enslave the Native Americas but this being there land, used it to there advantage and fought back, making it more trouble then it was worth. Lastly, The Natives are used to farming so they could farm they way THEY wanted to.
