They would trade for slaves. The Europeans would then take the slaves to the Americas to trade for sugar, rum, cotton, tobacco and coffee. The Triangular Slave Trade was the name often given to the transatlantic slave trade. It describes the three sides to the route the slave ships took from Europe to West Africa, then to the Caribbean and the Americas and finally back to Europe; the routes are known as the Outward Passage, the ‘Middle Passage’, and the Return or Homeward Passage. The term is slightly inaccurate as there were many trade routes used during this period that did not start and end in Europe. The Middle Passage is the term used to describe slave trade from Africa to America. The trip was horrible. Many people died of diseases and were thrown overboard. People were packed like animals and had to watch others die and suffer. They did not know where they were going and many decided to fight or even kill themselves. The ships carried much more people than they were made for. The slaves were given very little food during the trip. But, few days before they reached America, they were given extra food so they would look better and earn more money at the slave auction. Middle Passage Britain, Africa, West Indies, The new world(Americas), Spain, and Portugal were all involved in the trades. But Europe and the Americas are the points everyone knows about. From research done there were about 10 million slaves taken from Africa, but only 2 out of 10 made it to South or North America.
