Enslaved africans were brought to south carolina to cultivate a new type of this crop?
Enslaved Africans were taken from the "Rice Coast" of Gambia and Sierra Leone. Rice was little known in the Americas at this time, and was a lucrative business in the Lowland areas.
when the europeans first came to the Americas they brought diseases which the native Americans weren't immuned to. therefore they died and the europeans had no one to work and farm the lands. they knew that africans had immunity so they enslaved them and brought them to the Americas. another reason native Americans died was because the europeans had guns and were in constant warfare with them.
the persons who brought the africans to the Caribbean were the Europeans they needed them to help in the cultivation of sugar and they had the amerindians but they found out that the africans were easily enslaved and were stronger and could endure hard labour but the amerindian s could not. attempts were tried at capyuring the Kalinagoes bu they were too warlike and so the Kalinagoes would kill them first.
