The Dutch Colonized mostly countries in South America or in the Lesser Antilles.

The Triangular Trade
In the early America stages you could only get goods from Africa or England. England would supply goods such as beads, weapons, rum, cloth and etc. They would sail all this stuff from England to Africa and their the slaves would be loaded onto the ships and then sent to the Caribbean to be used. This is called the Triangular Trade because it is done in a triangle. The countries that took part in the Triangular Trade were England, Africa, West Indies, Spain, Portugal, France and the Dutch. The Triangular trade started in the 1680s and ended in the 1880s.
