“A Bus Tour You Don’t Want to Miss!”

THE 1811 SLAVE REVOLT TOUR!

 

One of the most suppressed and hidden stories of African and African American history is the story of the 1811 Slave Revolt. This was the largest slave revolt in the United States and the least known.

You may be familiar with Nat Turner or Denmark Vesey, but few are knowledgeable about Charles Deslonde, the leader of the 1811 Slave Revolt. Deslonde and his lieutenants were brilliant people. Like in Haiti, their aim was to abolish slavery and establish a free republic to be governed by former enslaved people. They almost succeeded.

The tour enlightens you on how Deslonde’s rebels carried out the revolt. Visit some of the locations where the slave rebels fought the U.S. troops and militia and other locations related to the revolt. Learn what happened. Discover the gains made and the foundation laid for further revolts.

A descendant of the rebels will escort you to numerous stops where significant actions occurred. History will come alive. This is an educational adventure you do not want to miss!
