American Slave Revolts and Conspiracies
Hundreds of slave revolts and conspiracies occurred during the two centuries that North America engaged in slavery. None were successful, but certain campaigns were significant enough to inspire other revolts, fuel a chronic fear of uprising in slaveholders and politicians, and keep alive the perennial desire for freedom felt by black slaves. This book examines ten representative revolts and offers narratives, primary materials, chronologies and biographies of participants. [From the publisher]
