A brief lesson in American history

A BRIEF HISTORY LESSON:
A lot people are holding a mistaken belief that there were 400 years of slavery in America. Actually the truth is that the Dutch brought the first African slaves here in 1619. 400 years of slavery from 1619 means that slavery would end next year in 2019. We did not become a nation until 1788, and the 13th amendment which abolished slavery was ratified in 1865, which is 77 years of slavery in the United States, not 400.
