Age of Exploration

African slave trade has grown exceedingly here in Europe. We have given african rulers tobacco, weapons, textiles, metalworks, rum and gunpowder, all in exchange for these exotic household servants that get to live on these glorified plantaions that they do not deserve. The reason why we have these African people is because when Portugal and other countries were able to expand overseas, they went to the coast of Africa and traded goods in exchange for these people. Over time we went from trading with the coast to trading more inland. Even though we have exstentive amounts of slaves, we weren't the first to have them. We inherited the idea from many cultures, such as the Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, ect. These trades have been going on for over two hundred years, but things are about to change. Many Africans have tried to put an end to slavery but have failed, Affonso I for example. Recently, the religious ruler of Futa Toro has finally brought it to the end. After the many centuries of us taking their people and utilizing them as workers, or sending them the Americas to farm rice, tobacco, sugar or work on other plantations, they finally put their foot down. The slave trade lead to great depopulation in the country. The slave trade, as well as the trade of spices and other exotic goods, have brought great fortune to our country as well as those who occupy it.
Christopher Columbus is exceedingly well known for "sailing the ocean blue in 1492," but that's not all he did. Columbus is credited for discovering the Americas, although natives were already settled there before his arrival. However, his voyage began the exploration and colonization of the Americas.
Ferdinand Magellan was a prominent explorer in the early 1500s. His most successful voyage was the attempt of discovering another route to Eastern Asia. He eventually found the passage he was seeking, the "All Saints' Channel." Unfortunately Magellan and 40 of his men died before they could return home in a battle with tribes in the Philippines.
Prince Henry led the way in sponsoring exploration for Portugal. His navigators claimed the Madeira and Azores islands, expanding Portuguese territories. He was interested in controlling land in Africa because of the Muslim riches and the thought of converting the tribal people to Christianity. He sent a quest out to explore the coast of Africa, but died before the voyage was concluded.
