Pocahontas: Heyyyy Galileo ;)
Malan: Hey babe..
Sacagawea: Hellooo :D
Galileo: Hey there ladies.
Malan: What’s going to be the highlight of this dinner tonight?
Pocahontas: Well Galileo, We could talk about you and I? ;)
Sacagawea: Or we could talk about something important?
Galileo: How bout them Yankee’s?
Malan: Uhm no, Boston all the way.
Galileo: Alright then, what about Triangular Trade?
Sacagawea: Anything is better than Pocahontas going on and on about how she…..
Pocahontas: Give it a rest Sacagawea!
Sacagawea: So what exactly is a triangular trade system?
Galileo: The Triangular Trade was a route to receive slaves.
Malan: Let me guess, it got its name from having three different trade systems?
Galileo: Exactly! It got its name from the three routes that it formed.
Pocahontas: This is boring, can we talk about something else?
Malan: I think its interesting, Keep going!
Galileo: Well ask me something
Sacagawea: Well where were these three “routes” located?
Galileo: Well the triangle went from The Americas, To Europe, To Africa.
Sacagawea: Good to know!
Malan: Now I have a question..
Galileo: Okay, shoot.
Malan: What did the first trade route carry?
Galileo: The first route carried fish, lumber, and other goods from New England to the West Indies.
Pocahontas: I wish they traded sugar, This coffee is really strong.
Galileo: Well actually, in the West Indies they traded sugar and molasses which is a dark brown syrup product made from sugar cane.
Pocahontas: That isn’t going help me right now though! -__-
Sacagawea: Hahaha, also, back then, it was used to make rum.
Galileo: And from the West Indies merchants carried the rum, along with guns, gunpowder, and tools to West Africa.
Malan: Why would they Bring that stuff all the way to Africa?
Galileo: Because The goods were sold for Slaves.
