It was probs originally the “Stoned Rebellion” because the slaves must have been high as kites to go through with this cray-cray uprising!!!
Led by a slave named Jemmy, nicknamed “Cato,” 20 fellow slaves gathered near the Stono River in South Carolina on a Sunday when white people were at church. They marched towards a slave-free Florida with a sign that said “Liberty!”, recruiting more than 80 slaves and killing anyone who tried to stop them along the way.
South Carolina Lieutenant Governor William
NoBull Shit wasn’t pleased with Cato’s uprising, so he sent a militia down to stop them. The slaves fought like hell, but the white people killed or captured most of the rebels.
Who knew Florida was full of freedom-loving hippies?????
HMMMmmmm…. our beach house on the Jersey Shore is SO last decade. Maybe we’ll relocate!!!
