In the early as the 15 century, England passed from raising sheep and producing wool, an agricultural activity, to manufacturing cloth. This signaled the beginning of capitalist production. It is in capitalist production that we can locate the basic cause of the slave trade. The slave ship sailed from the home country with a cargo of manufactured goods. These were exchanged at a profit on the coast of Africa for Negroes, who were traded on the plantations, at another profit, in exchange for a cargo of colonial produce to be taken back to the home country.
Finally the re-scripting of events through diaries and other literature that describe Indian “occupation” rather than possession or nativity, or the “first” wedding in a New English colony to manufacture a status quo where the New English become native New Englanders, and where Indians become intruders in settlements rather than the land’s native inhabitants. In other words, narrative frameworks are a tool of erasure of Indian culture and society in the early history of New England. New English settlers used racial and cultural differences to drive a wedge between themselves and the “other” inhabitants of the
Native American, food and culture Native Americans survived largely on the food sources that were closest to them. The cultures of these peoples developed based on how their food was obtained. Elaborate societies emerged in South and Central America that developed complex political systems, paved roads, written language and numerical systems. These large populations lived in large cities and had a harsh religion that required human sacrifice. The economies of these people were based mostly on agriculture.
The Africans that were sold were to work on plantations . The third and final part of the triangular trade was the return voyage from " The Americans to Europe ". Slave ships returned to Europe which carried fish, lumber, and other goods from New England to the West Indies. In the West Indies they picked up sugar and molasses which is a dark brown syrup product made from sugar cane. This was used to make rum.
Southern States University History 101 Compare and contrast the European culture of the English and the French with the Cultures of the Native Americans in the New World. The conquest of American territory and its subsequent exploitation by Europeans caused a breakdown and destruction of existing native cultures on the continent. American lands were take systematically by whites who were founded their towns and cities on behalf of European Kings.

He was bound and moved to a slave pen owned by James Burch, a slave trader. It was located in the Yellow House, one of several slave markets on the National Mall. This and Robey’s Tavern were located in the area between the present-day buildings housing the Department of Education and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, within view of the Capitol.  Burch coerced Northup into accepting a new name and past as having been born a slave in Georgia. Burch told Northup that if he were to tell his true story to another person, he would be killed.
The officer informs through his correspondence with his wife through his letters that he has a number of slaves that are appointed do various chores related to plantation and household (McArthur and Burton 1996).

Political issue was one of the main causes of the Civil War. The Kansas-Nebraska Act repealed the Missouri Compromise in 1854, which proposed that the Nebraska territory be divided into the Kansas territory and Nebraska territory and that the settlers there ruled with popular sovereignty (Doc.7). Dred Scott sued for his freedom, since he argued his residency on a free soil land made him a free citizen. The court decided against him because slaves are property and had no right to sue (Doc.9). Another cause of the civil war was the actions of John Brown, who attacked on the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia.
Native cultures have many different languages, rituals and practices. The major difference between the cultures is their way of survival that is determined by the land. Not all tribes are in the same land formation so they would all have to adapt to the land they lived on. Their mode of survival would be determined by the characteristics and the animals that are most bountiful in that region. Some tribes would hunt and gather there food while others would use agriculture.
