Can someone help me out with some history?
As I recall, the actual import of slaves from Africa to the USA completely stopped around 1800.
Some basic help. The 18th century is from 1701 to 1800.
I went back and read the whole article.
Bush's ancestor was selling slaves on the north coast of South America.
In the USA, at some point around 1800, the North and South states compromised on some issue, and the South agreed to stop importing slaves.
I can't recall the political issue or the date, and, after reading two Wiki articles, I still can't find the answer.
