South American region, especially Brazil, was the home for many people, because of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The slave trade led to the mixing of races. In South America, the escaped slaves, indigenous people, and the tensions between the colonial countries of Europe shaped the region. After the end of the Dutch monopoly on the slave trade in 1690, the British merchants in the southern colonies carried thousands of slaves from Africa. The slaves were used as workers in the tobacco fields . A large number of the slaves went to Brazil and West Indies, whereas, others went to Chesapeake region. In the Northern colonies, slaves were not used to supply labor force. By 1740, there were 15,000 slaves in England. The slaves in the north worked in shops or homes and lived in cities.
