Triangular Trade- becomes the ninth trade circuit on each leg of the voyage, different things are traded down to Africa= manufactured goods for slaves, they are taken to the new world and traded for sugar, molasses, tobacco, cotton, some spices, argiucultar products those products are taking to Europe goods for goods are being traded b. Slave Trade- someone who is forced to do jobs, they are property (owned by someone else) and have no rights almost all the people being trade were bark skinned Africans the biggest thing being traded at the time were slaves they are human property bought and sold like any other property slaves are branded like cattle so everyone knew who owned who young slaves are worth more than older slaves and those who know how to do a craft are worth more as well c. Sugar- the most important thing going back to Europe it is like the oil of the 17 th and 18 th century sugarcane will go bad if it is not processed quickly (meaning you cut the cane, take it to a mill to be grinded into juice that will be boiled to make into syrup)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
