Storyboard Text

  • In 1811, a mixed slave driver named Charles Deslondes, worked for the Andry sugar plantation in Louisiana.
  • After telling his plans to slaves on the Andry plantation and in areas surrounding it. On January 8, the slaves of the Andry plantation rebelled and killed the family.
  • Deslondes and his men had carefully chosen the well-equipped Andry plantation that had a small militia. They stole uniforms, weapons, and gunpowder.
  • Wade Hampton was a South Carolina legislator and slave owner who'd fought against the Indians. He was given the assignment to restrain the rebellion.
  • With a mixed group of about 30 regular U.S. Army soldiers and militia, it took Hampton two days to break the rebels. The battle lasted until the slaves didn't have any more ammunition.
  • During the last battle, the lack of fighting practice was obvious. None of the whites were killed, but for the slaves, about 20 rebels died while the rest went to prison or flowed in the swamp.
