    • David Livingstone is horrified about the African slave trade and campaigns about the abolition of the slave trade. He stayed in Africa to work on stopping slaving, but is unheard from Europe. Another explorer, Henry Morton Stanley comes to Africa to find Livingstone and said the famous quote: ”Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”. Livingstone was OK and the two became friends. Stanley left and Livingstone started suffering from dysentery. On 1 May 1873, he was found in a prayer, dead. His body was taken to England and buried in Westminster Abbey, but the Africans kept the heart and buried it under a tree near where he died.
