The first slaves arrived in 1619 in Jamestown, Virginia on a Dutch ship. During the following 200 years, approximately 600,000 more arrived to the colonies in America, mostly to work in the cotton and tobacco fields. In this book, you will read about who freed the slaves and the process that provided them their freedom.







Where Did They Arrive From?
They arrived from Africa, mostly from Africa’s west coast which were the main ports for the slave trade. The conditions of the ships they traveled on were horrible and they often were packed in the ship’s hold, chained and not able to move. Many slaves passed away because of starvation and disease on the ships.

Abolitionism
Many of the northern states had outlawed slavery after the revolution. Most slaves living north of the Mason Dixon Line were let go and set free by 1840. Most people living in the north believed that it should be illegal in all of the States. They became known as abolitionists since their desire was to abolish slavery.







Underground Railroad
The Underground Railroad was a way for slaves in the south to escape to the north. The Railroad consisted of many homes, hideouts, and people helping the slaves to go north in secret. Between 1810 and 1865, about 100,000 slaves successfully escaped this way.
