史唐诺起义,173999

173999日,星期天的清晨,20名黑奴在南卡罗莱纳州的史唐诺河畔秘密会面,商量他们的投奔自由大计。数分钟后,他们冲进位于史唐诺桥上哈齐森的店,杀了两名店员,偷走枪枝和一些补给品。

奴隶团体往南行而且数量大幅成长;史唐诺起义是殖民地在美国独立革命之前,最大规模的暴动,正在暗中不断酝酿。


Early on the morning of Sunday, September 9, 1739, 20 black slaves met in secret near the Stono River in South Carolina to plan their escape to freedom. Minutes later, they burst into Hutcheson's store at Stono's bridge, killed the two storekeepers, and stole the guns and powder inside.

The group of slaves grew in number as they headed south. Stono's Rebellion, the largest slave uprising in the Colonies prior to the American Revolution, was under way.
