So what your saying it was European money that built the USA?! :smile:
What my reading has lead me to reason is that England merchants and cotton industrialist aid in the introduction of slavery system into the colonies .How far is India ,where the Europeans received most of the cotton,from England and France in comparison to Charleston or Savannah? The British and French had established the system in the isles in the sugar plantation all they did was to transport the blacks from there to Jamestown ,unless you believe the incident of just a few accidentally landing on the shores of Virginia.Suggest reading "Empire of COTTON,a Global History",author , Sven Beckert
