Lesson 5: Rebellion

Lesson 5: Rebellion Grade Level: 6-12 Lesson Time: Two class periods Vocabulary: Revolt- A rise in rebellion. Materials: Video Link: “The Voyage of La Amistad”- 70 minutes Pencil Worksheet # 13: Voyage of La Amistad Worksheet # 3: Written Document Analysis Cinque to Lewis Tappan Amistad Captives to John Quincy Adams John Quincy Adams to Simeon Jocelyn, Joshua Leavitt and Lewis Tappan Procedure: Explain to the students that rebellion was something that the enslaved Africans and those who became African Americans had always engaged in. Whether it was small scale, like breaking tools or working slow, or large scale, like running away to form an armed community in the forests and swamps (maroons) or running away to a nonslaveholding state using a secret network of helpers (Underground railroad). Wherever there was injustice, there was resistance. As an example, in 1811, a slave revolt took place in Louisiana in the parishes of St. John the Baptist and St. Charles. The revolt was led by a man named Charles from the Deslondes plantation. Charles was originally born in the Caribbean island called Santo Domingo, what is now Haiti, and was brought to Louisiana after the Haitian Revolution in 1793. Since he had experienced the first successful slave revolt in the Americas, he secretly taught his fellow enslaved laborers how it was done. For many years, Charles recruited a group of leaders, and they met in the woods to draw up a plan. On the evening of January 8, 1811, Charles and his lieutenants began the revolt. The Andry Plantation (near what is now the town of LaPlace, Louisiana) was the starting point. They then marched down the River Road southward towards New Orleans. They were able to march a total of 15 miles (the distance between the Louisiana towns of LaPlace and Destrehan) and were stopped just before the Destrehan plantation by U.S. troops and local militias (police force) who were called upon by the slaveowners of the areas. By January 11, the freedom fighters were defeated and many of the leaders and participants were killed. Another example is the Amistad revolt that took place during the Middle Passage.
