Slavery was introduced to the "New World" but Dutch traders in the Carribean island of Hispanoila. Slavery was brought to the new world almost as soon as it was discovered. While several European countries actually outlawed slavery, they did support the slave trade as a means of raising tax revenue. England banned slavery prior to the revolution, but not in colonies. The Portuguese, Spanish, French and Dutch all transported slaves purchased from tribal Africans, but the Dutch were given the worst name. The Portuguese and Spanish transported the most. The French the least.
