It was easy for them to send goods off.  The Indian trade (from India) was very important during the wet/ dry seasons o They had very rich food, clothing, gold, and many other things o Islamic people ran the trades  Europeans miscalculated the circumference of the ocean and landed up in what we call the indies.  Columbus thought he found the indies but others had before him  The Spanish had gold and silver to help them fund there voyage across the ocean  The Spanish find land unpopulated but their people start dying quickly  In 1520 people found “America” but they didn’t know what was there or Who was there  Leave England because they don’t agree with the king’s religion choice, and great there own  When the colonist came they started dying quickly from diseases  50-90% of the population disappeared  some of there jobs were mining, and raising crops to earn money  gold was considered wealth but concentrated when used for trading  silver was there #2 trade value  with the help of the Indians the colonies were making more of there own goods. SLAVERY the most popular places for slavery was Africa, and south east “America” Europeans and Africans were making a lot of deals together in Africa they would trade people “slaves” for guns and goods with the Europeans 10-15 million slaves are recorded to have crossed the ocean over 700 years. Recap on trading: Europeans would give Africans goods, Africans would give the colonists sugar, molasses (they gave both Europeans and colonist slaves), and the colonist would give Europeans tobacco and other food goods. Slaver produced wealth in many countries 2
