Legal Implications of the Illegal Slave Trade to Cuba in the Nineteenth Century. Between 1794 and 1807, the U.S. Congress pushed four major acts that penalized Americans participating in the trade. In 1800, a Congressional act gave the Navy legal sanction to seize vessels under the American flag engaged in the slave trade. Acts of April 20, 1818, and March 3, 1819, allowed the Navy still broader discretion. As a result, a series of court cases arose involving the participation of US citizens and US capital in the slave trade to Cuba. I am particularly interested in the study of several of these cases, especially the various expeditions that departed from New York to West Africa, and then to Cuba, in the late years of the illegal slave trade (1850s-1960s)
