The last journey of the Fredensborg

Fredensborg followed the well-established route of the slavers, providing for full cargoes on all three legs of the journey, and taking advantage of the prevailing winds and currents.

In the triangular trade the ships carried the following cargoes, realizing great profits:

  • Trade goods, such as muskets, gunpowder, brandy, textiles, iron rods, etc., from Europe
  • Slaves, ivory and gold from Africa
  • Colonial goods, such as sugar, rum, cotton, dyewood, mahogany, etc., from the Caribbean
