The time when the slave commerce from Africa got here to an finish

On June 7, 1862, the United States and England signed a treaty to end the slave trade.

The agreement gave each country the right to control the other country’s merchant ships for smuggling slaves while sailing through a designated area of ​​the Pacific Ocean.

The treaty also established international tribunals in Sierra Leone, Cape of Good Hope, and New York to try smugglers.

By 1864, the slave trade from Africa had come to an end as a result of the Anglo-American treaty and the blockade of southern ports during the American Civil War.
