Though U.S. warships seized slave vessels as early as 1800, 4 a long time handed prior to the army tested an enduring squadron off the western coast of Africa to interdict U.S.-flag vessels engaging during this alternate. Canney strains the Navy’s position in interdicting the slave alternate, nice Britain’s strain at the U.S. govt to cut down slave site visitors, the construction of the squadron, and the way person politicians, division secretaries, captains, and squadron commanders interpreted the legislation and orders from better experts, altering squadron operations. whereas recognized ships and captains served in this station, none gained contrast within the Africa Squadron.
