While the United States and the British colonies that preceded our independence played no prominent role in creating the institution of slavery, or even in establishing the long-standing African slave trade pioneered by Arab, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and other merchants long before the settlement of English North America, Americans did contribute mightily to the spectacularly successful anti-slavery agitation.
As early as , the Puritan founders of New England expressed their revulsion at the enslavement of their fellow children of God. Nowhere did idealists pay a higher price for liberation than they did in the United States of America. Confederate forces very few of whom ever owned slaves may not have fought consciously to defend the Peculiar Institution, but Union soldiers and sailors particularly at the end of the war proudly risked their lives for the emancipation cause.
Moreover, the economic cost of liberation remained almost unimaginable. The idea of reparations rests on the notion of making up to the descendants of slaves for the incalculable damage done to their family status and welfare by the enslavement of generations of their ancestors. Unfortunately, to bring American blacks in line with their cousins who the slave-traders left behind in Africa would require a drastic reduction in their wealth, living standards, and economic and political opportunities.
If we sought to erase the impact of slavery on specific black families, we would need to obliterate the spectacular economic progress made by those families and by US citizens in general over the last years.
In view of the last century of history in Nigeria or Ivory Coast or Sierra Leone or Zimbabwe, could any African American say with confidence that he or she would have fared better had some distant ancestor not been enslaved?

While all forms of servitude are certainly unacceptable to most people today, this has not always been the case.
Formerly, the rules of war and society were such that servitude was often imposed as a penalty on criminals and prisoners of war, and was even freely chosen by many workers for economic reasons.
Children born of those held in servitude were also at times considered to be in the same state as that of their parents. These types of servitude were the most common among those generally considered to establish the so-called 'just titles' of servitude.
