He was known for his ability to inspire and bring out the best in his men.
Lord Nelson believed that the Slave Trade was a necessary evil which provided a training ground for Britain's sailors and kept her economy strong. His speech against the Foreign Slave Trade Bill introduced into Parliament in 1806, stopped the Abolition movement headed by William Wilberforce from passing laws to ban the slave trade in the British Empire. However, in July 1807 the destruction of all European settlements on the African continent under Mokhachane I (d) effectively ended the African slave trade (although not the practice of slavery itself).
