BRICK NEGRIER- FRENCH- 1830



In spite of the official abolition of slavery by the Vienne treaty of 1815, the trade of Negroes continued until the middle of the 19th Century into the French colonies. The slave dealers had to imagine ships capable of escaping from the watch-ships. The Ouragan was one of these ships, which according to its thin shape and its jab-joint hull, could be both swift and easy to handle, and became one of the swiftest carrier of slaves in the 19th century.
