The Slave Traders are a faction of practitioners of Slavery, and they have close ties to most factions that engage in its practice. Including The Holy Nation and the United Cities. They run several outposts of their own in the world, ranging from markets, to farms and mines. Special NPCs this faction has. Unique characters such as rulers and other important people.

The trip earlier this month was the latest in a series of similar gestures organised .

I recognise that it's a small, simple act to say sorry - but it was a handful of people who started the slave trade and the ripples of their actions caused evil throughout the continent of Africa," said Mr Hawkins, who lives in Liskeard. Hopefully a handful of people can now be the beginning of something good.

Google: "jewish slave traders". And the White man was not the first slave holder nor will he be the last. There’s slavery and bondage throughout the entire non-white world

Google: "jewish slave traders". There’s slavery and bondage throughout the entire non-white world. But all a white-hating jewish-Marxist system pumps out over and over and over again is of how the White man enslaved the poor, kind and noble jigger! The word slavery comes from the word Slav - as in the White Slavs (slaves) who were held in bondage centuries prior to any African selling members of his race off to jewish slave traders. Slav a people, ery a suffix, meaning action.

Broke by the War is a collection of more than 140 letters written between 1852 and 1857 by South Carolina slave trader A. J. McElveen to his employer Z. B. Oakes, a prosperous Charleston broker. The correspondence provides an intimate look into the world of slave trading, from the economic aspects of prices, shipping, supply sources, and financing to the impact on those involved, including the breakup of slave families, the pursuit of runaways, and the various roles played by doctors, lawyers, bankers, and planters in this abominable business. Edited and introduced by Edmund L. Drago, McElveen's letters give the modern reader an opportunity to view Old South slave trading through the eyes of a representative participant. As Drago recounts, the Civil War decimated McElveen's finances and left him, as described years later by a credit investigator, simply as "broke by the war―old man."

The writing of this book had to be a difficult undertaking, making sense of and giving perspective to letters written over a hundred years ago. The editor did a splendid job and made the history easy to follow.
It was interesting to see how Mr. McElveen managed to divorce himself from the humans he was buying and selling. He really sounded like he was buying and selling horses instead of humans. It is possible that he needed to see human slaves as livestock in order to be able to adapt to the business of slavery. It was still very sad and hard to read about how human beings were traded as if they were farm animals.
Reading this book brought home the history of our country in a way nothing else has ever done before. I was mentally shaken and hopefully a little wiser for having read it.
