The Stono Rebellion

Another 'untold' slice of American History. Blacks were not always submissive, subjugated prisoners. Watch the video below for a glimpse into the Stono Rebellion of 1739.

The Stono Rebellion, the largest slave insurrection in British North America, began on September 9, 1739. About 20 Africans raided a store near Wallace Creek, a branch of the Stono River. Taking guns and other weapons and slaying the shopkeepers, the rebels marched south toward promised freedom in Spanish Florida.
