Slavery began in the stone age. Sometimes tribes would raid each

other and take captives. As long as there has been recorded

history, there have been records of groups of people defeating

other groups at war and then taking the defeated people as slaves.

This went on in Africa, Australia, Asia, China, South America and

what we called the civilized world . . . Europe, from where it

moved to the "New World".
