What was the first state that made up a law to eliminate slavery in 1652?
In 1652, the Catholic colony of Rhode Island made slavery illegal, and the colony of Virginia had fewer than 500 slaves -- only three percent of its almost 17,000 colonists. The tobacco planters of Virginia were still dependent primarily on indentured servants for labor, the indentured servants not requiring an initial investment as did the buying of slaves.
Whilst the area surrounding present Cape Town was occupied for millennia before the first European settlers; the present city of Cape Town traces its origins to the original Dutch settlers who established a provisioning post for the Dutch East India Company in Cape Town in 1652. Jan van Riebeeck and his men arrived in South African on 6 April 1652 which is when the first modern European settlements would have been built.
