The Triangle
Aucu vote pour l'instant.

Identical statues in Liverpool, England; Benin, West Africa; and Richmond, Virginia, memorialize the British, African and American triangular trade, now identified as the Reconciliation Triangle. Traders profited from delivering over 100,000 Africans to Virginia between the 1600’s and the American Revolution—and at least 260,000 to other North American places before 1808. The “triangle” extended between Liverpool and other large British cities, the Republic of Benin, and other West African Kingdoms, and Virginia and other North American colonies. Profits from the sale of enslaved Africans financed major British and North American economic development. www.hmdb.org/Marker.asp?Marker=20766
