1824 ~ Impolicy Of Slavery Map ~ http://mapco.net/impolicy/impolicyb.htm In the “Anti-slavery” chart of the world the primary argument against the slave trade is based on the economic burden to the British population in paying duties to support the production of “Slave grown Sugar”. This argument was commonly used at the time, in conjunction with contempt for the degrading treatment of slaves kept as property by white masters, to argue the case for the abolition of slavery.
