  1. 1. The Stono Rebellion <ul><li>Milan van Gool </li></ul><ul><li>Chae Young Lim </li></ul><ul><li>Slave Perspective </li></ul>
  2. 2. When? <ul><li>The Stono Rebellion started in the early morning of Sunday September 9th of the year 1739. </li></ul><ul><li>It lasted until the late afternoon. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where? <ul><li>It happened in South Carolina. </li></ul><ul><li>Stono Plantation. </li></ul><ul><li>We marched through the city. </li></ul><ul><li>We met at the Stono river, which is 20 miles from charleston. </li></ul><ul><li>It ended at the site of the Edison river. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why? <ul><li>We were provoked by the growing intensity of the harshness of slavery, because we were being treated horribly. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Who? <ul><li>We were led by Jemmy. </li></ul><ul><li>Started with 20 of us. </li></ul><ul><li>We had recruited over 60 other slaves. </li></ul><ul><li>We forced some black slaves to join. </li></ul><ul><li>We killed over 20 whites, and twice as many blacks. </li></ul><ul><li>A few planters set out on horseback to catch up with us. </li></ul>
  6. 6. What? <ul><li>Summary of all the above. </li></ul><ul><li>On Sunday September 9th of the year 1739, 20 of us started a rebellion to express the unacceptance of the harshness of slave owners. We were led by Jemmy. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What? (2) <ul><li>We met at the Stono River, which was 20 miles from the Stono Plantation and Hutchinson store. We broke into the Hutchinson store, stole guns, ammunition, gun powder, and killed the 2 shopkeepers there at the time. With these tools, we marched down the roads of South Carolina, burning houses, chanting “LIBERTY!!”, recruiting and forcing other slaves to join, killing more than 20 whites and over 40 blacks as we went. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What? (3) <ul><li>We intended to flee to Spanish Florida. </li></ul><ul><li>We spared just one slave owner who was “kind” to his slaves. </li></ul><ul><li>We were taken down by planters at the Edison River. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of us were killed. </li></ul><ul><li>Survivors were sold to the West-Indies. </li></ul>
  9. 9. What (4) <ul><li>As a consequence, the government created a rule that was to minimize provocation, but if another rebellion occurred, the punishments would be more severe. </li></ul><ul><li>This was one of the greatest rebellions in the entire 18th century. </li></ul>
  10. 10. How <ul><li>Jemmy had laid out a plan to steal gunpowder, guns, and ammunition. Once we had this, we could proceed with the rest of the plan, which was what was clearly shown in the previous few slides. </li></ul>
