Slave Rebellion is when slaves try to fight against the whole idea of slavery and regain their freedom. These are the times when slave owners begin to have fear because when they begin to fight for their freedom they know that this could lead to uproars and maybe even to abolishing slavery.


"The largest slave rebellion in U.S history , which took place in louisiana in 1811, was led by a man from Saint Domingue...These revolts and others helped bring about the eventual abolotion of slavery in the Americas. Britian abolished the slave trade (but not slavery in 1807)

-Adapted from: Michel-rolph Trouillot,"The Haitian Revolution and its impact on the Americas," address to the Third world Plantation Conference,Lafayette,Louisiana, Oct. 27, 1989.
