In speaking about the Continent of North America, slaves were brought to the settlement of the British in Jamestown in the early 17th century. This is now part of the US state of Virginia. It took until 1861 before slavery became an issue in the US Civil War. Earlier slaves were brought to Spanish held areas in the Gulf of Mexico.
