Stono Rebellion

  2. 2.

  5. 5. WHAT <ul><li>Some of them were sold off to the West Indies. </li></ul><ul><li>South Carolina later passed a law which severely limited the privileges of the slaves, Negro Act 1740, which did not allow the slaves to work for money, to grow their own food, be education and assemble in groups. </li></ul>
  6. 6. WHERE <ul><li>The slave march started from near Stono River, less than twenty miles from Charlestown, in South Carolina. </li></ul><ul><li>The slaves entered Hutcheson’s arms store at Stono’s bridge and forcefully took firearms and ammunitions, killing the store owner. </li></ul>

  10. 10. WHY <ul><li>Reports in the newspaper regarding a ‘Security Act’ which was going to be passed. The Act dictates that all white males must take firearms with them even on Sundays when they go to church, fearing an uprising of the slaves. </li></ul>
  11. 11. HOW <ul><li>The rebellion was quite brutal. </li></ul><ul><li>The rebels opened fire with two shots </li></ul><ul><li>The whites returned fire and killed about fourteen slaves. </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Sad Ending <ul><li>Despite their effort the stono's were not able to win, in the end the Whites won. Some of them were sold and some were just re-captured as slaves. </li></ul>
