  1. Stono Rebellion

    The Stono Rebellion was a slave rebellion that commenced on 9 September 1739, in the colony of South Carolina. It was the largest slave uprising in the British mainland colonies, with 21 whites and 44 blacks killed. The uprising was led by native Africans who were likely from the Kingdom of Kongo. Some of the rebels spoke Portuguese. Their leader, Jemmy was a literate slave who led 20 other enslaved Kongolese, who may have been former soldiers, in an armed march south from the Stono River. They were bound for Spanish Florida. The Spanish promised freedom and land at St. Augustine to slaves escaped from the British colonies. They recruited nearly 60 other slaves and killed some whites before being intercepted and defeated by the South Carolina militia near the Edisto River. A group of slaves escaped and traveled another 30 miles before battling a week later with the militia. Most of the captured slaves were executed; a few survived to be sold to markets in the West Indies.
