Praise
"The author ties together diverse political, economic, and cultural threads [and] vividly evokes the atmosphere of New Orleans of the early 19th century...."
From the Publisher
Annotation Historian Daniel Rasmussen uncovers an almost lost, or supressed, chapter in American history as he reports on a major slave uprising in 1811 New Orleans, when over 500 slaves took up arms and marched on the city. Rasmussen provides historical context and a keen sense of place, as he draws on his research in archives on what was, as the subtitle declares, America's largest slave revolt.
Editors Note Provides a gripping and revealing history of the 1811 New Orleans slave rebellion that provides new insight into American expansionism and the path to the Civil War. 35,000 first printing.
