If you mean how slaves were transported to the United States, it was by ship. If you mean how slaves were "transported" to freedom from the south, that was called the "Underground Railroad."
The word was used by the Portuguese to distinguish Creole slaves - that is, slaves who were born in South America as children of slaves - from slaves who were imported from Africa and who were called "African" slaves.

I don't mean to have this go the wrong way, but they had slaves for cheap/free labor for one.
If you mean where were the slaves he freed, the answer is nowhere. The Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves only in states who were in rebellion, and at the point the rebelling Confederacy did not recognize the Union as its governing power and so it did not effect them. Therefore, Lincoln was attempting to free slaves in the Confederate South.
To knark or tattle on them. Selling down river was what the plantation owners did to slaves who misbehaved, separating them from their families. This has come to mean betraying someone by telling the authorities on them.
Many were - and the worst ones tended to be downriver in Mississippi. (Hence the fear of being 'sold down the river') Others who were highly respectable, like Robert E.Lee, treated slaves harshly because they thought blacks would abuse lenient treatment. Curiously, the Confederate President was a Mississippi landowner who treated his slaves so well that they didn't want their freedom.
The War Between the states was not fought over slavery but instead state rights. This does not mean the South did not use slaves in the war, but the south offered slaves a chance to earn freedom if they served in the war, even though only ten percent of southerners were slaves at the time. So to answer this question more directly, yes slaves were not needed in the war but the use of slavery… Read More
They were of course unhappy with them, since it would mean their economic ruin.
it depends on if you mean why couldn't they go to school when they were slaves or if when they were freed. they probably wouldn't be aloud to have an education or be smart enough to wonder what the difference between them and their masters are and why they are to be working and not the masters being slaves.
Partly simple exploitation - how to extract the maximum labour, without having to pay for it. Partly racial stereotyping - if you give them an inch, they'll take a mile. Partly asserting the class system - keeping the social barriers in place Some slave-owners wanted to be more lenient with their slaves, but were told that this would be letting the side down. The further South you went, the more brutal the treatment. That was… Read More
It meant that the slaves would be free and the southern people must have been broken-hearted knowing that all of their free labor would be lost.
The North won the civil war, which meant that the South had to rejoin the union and free their slaves.
if you mean when that would be in the early - mid 1800's if you mean what, they were African slaves brought over in slave ships used for house hands but mainly field hands on cotton plantations in the south or "confederacy" the north however did not own slaves and the civil war began ultimately leading to the freeing of all American slaves. hope this helps :)
It means your down for being single,seeing someone or being in a relationship
Think about being literally tied down and you will understand. This means that something keeps you from being free.
You mean "Did the Union armies free most of the slaves in the Confederacy during their Southern campaigns?" Not as many as that. But they did manage to deprive a lot of farmers of their labour force.
being positive when someone is down
Some white people did not want to help the slaves because they were afraid of being persecuted, they agreed with slavery or they were disinterested by the idea of slavery and therefore felt no need to help slaves. However, the answer depends on what you mean by 'help the slaves'. Because it could denote fighting against slavery or helping slaves escape.
segregation in the south means that the blacks and the whites were separated by their skin color and being judged by it
You mean south of America during the Civil War? I'm not really sure what you mean. I recommend you be more specific of your question. Anyways, if that is what you mean, then the Southerners wanted it because.. I suppose they figured it was unfair and they wanted their rights to own slaves and stuff. Sorry it isn't really a good answer.
Sent down in religion like, is a way of saying being brought down from somewhere higher than you. Ex.:Jesus being sent down from Heaven onto Earth.
it means not putting others down and not being mean to other people
Yes! That's why we had a civil war! Because the south didn't like blacks and wanted to keep them as slaves but the north(union) stepped in and said it as wrong so they both disagreed and had war. I mean where do u think the KKK came from? The south!
By Pretoria do you mean the city? If so, it can be found in South Africa, thus being on the continent of Africa.
The slaves brought their culture with them. Just because a person is made property, sold, and chained doesn't mean that they forget where they come from or who they are. Many slaves were leaders, educated, and trained soldiers.
if you mean farmers then that was because the south thought they were better that African American and because they were lazy and didn't want to work or pay money to people to work so they hired slaves
No, slaves could NOT be mean to their slaves because they would get in HUGE trouble. They would probably be put to death if they where. [: Audralynne :]

That they live in Australia. Answer Australia is in the south (indeed, the word Australia is derived from Latin word australis for south) and south is usually at the bottom of maps and globes, so heading south is often worded as "heading down".
Quite understandably, US President Lincoln and others believed that if four million slaves would immediately be freed at once, there would be economic chaos. This is said remembering that prior to the US Civil War, Northern textile mills used Southern cotton and the North also traded with the South on a mutual and orderly basis. When Lincoln was alive, the so-called border states in the Union kept their slaves. Throughout the war, he tried unsuccessfully… Read More

The slave masters wanted the people (slaves) to work work and work if they even take a short break the slaves get beat up. If the slaves are sick or worthless they KILL them. And the slave masters were mean when I say mean I mean it. The slave master tie the slaves be neck and leave them bleeding.
It means they look down and right. Are you having some directional confusion? Down. Then right. South, then east. Aint that hard.
If you mean holding public office by being in the government, it was only Roman citizens of the first class who had the right to hold office. If you mean being in the government in the sense of working at a government job, almost anyone who wanted to could be a part of the bureaucracy.

If they were slaves, then they were runaways! You probably mean How did freed blacks prove they weren't slaves.
If by SA you mean South America, then Africa is bigger. If by SA you mean South Africa, then South Africa is in Africa, being one of over 50 countries in Africa, so obviously Africa is much bigger.
This is an ideal which states that no human-being is born better or worse than any other. Which is ironic considering that most of the people writing the document that this was written on, specifically the Deceleration of Independence, had slaves. And by having slaves they were declaring that they were born better than their slaves.
Talk down to someone, insult their intelligence.
She is being friendly and wants to her down on her calories.
It refers to snow being down over the christmas
Although Lincoln freed the slaves they really weren't freed as some Southern people felt. The killing of slaves was still ongoing even though the slaves were free (with a piece of paper stating their freedom from their Master). They were basically hunted down. Some slaves were treated well by the Plantation owner and therefore knew no other life and decided to stay on the plantation. A very few managed to leave the South and have… Read More
Seasoning was the process of sending slaves to the Caribbean to work before bring them to the US. The sugar fields there were incredibly cruel, and most slaves died.

If you mean African-American slaves in the United States, no, there were no such slaves in 1942. Slavery ended in the 1860s in the US.
