Expert Answer

The French empire has acquired colonies in the Caribbean region, wherein French plantation owners employed local hands. However, shortage of manual labour in these plantations led to the blossoming of a triangular slave trade in Europe, Africa and America. French slave traders sailed from the southern French ports of Bordeaux and Nantes and bought African slaves from the local chieftains. From there on the slaves were shipped to America in inhuman conditions and forced to work in the Caribbean plantation. Although the convention of 1794 abolished slavery in France and its colonies, it was reintroduced by Napoleon. Eventually it was abolished forever in 1848.
