The Bacon's Rebellion was one of the largest popular Rebellion that uprising prior to the American revolution. This large Rebellion had began as a dispute among the English settlers in Virginia Over the Americans Indian policy.

Haiti was founded following a long period of slave revolutions and civil wars that lasted from 1791-1804. Unlike the innumerable slave conspiracies and rebellions that went down in defeat, the slave rebels of Haiti effectively abolished slavery and kicked out successive waves of European colonial authorities. Built on the ashes of the colonial plantation system, independent Haiti was surrounded by hostile powers and HAITI A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY 3 beset by continuing cycles of civil war and
In most of the slave states, the onward march of cotton cultivation placed an enormous pressure on remaining Indian lands. During the 1820’s, other states, like Missouri, forced its Indian population to leave the state. Soon after Missouri forced its Indians to move, other slave states, including Georgia, followed with the policy of expulsion. The Indian Removal Act of 1830, provided for uprooting the Five Civilized Tribes-the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole- with a population of about 60,000 living in North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. These tribes had made great efforts to become everything republican citizens should be.
The cotton gin did not only change the output of cotton in the south it also changed the whole entire country. It expanded slavery, created sectional conflict, fueled the American Industrial Revolution, and it also led to the America’s bloodiest war: The American Civil War. By Early 19th century cotton became King in United States, and slave labor was in critical demand. By 1790 slavery was a declining institution, in 1790 there are only about seven hundred thousands of slaves in United States, but in 1860 right before the out break of the American Civil War there are approximate four million slaves in United States.

FRQ for Three World Collide (Chapter 1-3) What role did unfree labor play in colonial American society? Unfree labor systems have been around in America since the early 1600’s and can still be seen today. The first form of slavery started with the arrival of indentured servants, where people bound themselves to masters in return for passage to America, many of whom wanted to escape their turbulent homeland. Eventually, this turned into the slavery as we have come to know it- African Americans doing backbreaking work for little or no money. While many disregard this system as cruel and unfair, in reality it helped to shape America as it is today.
During the battles portrayed in The Patriot, you see African-American soldiers fighting for the duration of the movie. During the earlier days of the war the enlistment of slaves as well as freeman was decided against by Congress with the agreement of General Washington. The largest concern was arming the slaves and chancing a revolt. Americans considered a slave revolt a larger threat than the opponents they were currently facing. The war started on April 19, 1775.
Because in my perspective, this contradictory proclamation seems to be a political propaganda to support only the whites. Today I stand, as a runaway slave who escaped the grasp of slave owners and harsh Fugitive Slave Laws presented in the Compromise of 1850. However, tension has finally reached a peak between the North and the South due to the secession in 1860. I believe that several key events from 1845-1861 caused all this turmoil and crashed the regional differences between the Union and the Confederacy together. Eventually leading to the outbreak of the Civil war in 1861.
What Lead to the Civil War. From the beginning of the United States, war was inevitable between the North and the South, over the issues of slavery. Ever since Eli Whitney’s invention of the cotton gins in 1790, the South has been on a completely different economic path from the North. In the 1850’s political developments, the Fugitive slave act, the Dread Scott decision, and the John Brown raid, eventually all drove the regions further and further apart. Even though the North and South tried to reconcile their differences on the issue of slavery by implementing compromises in the 1820’s and 1850’s, both attempts failed, leading up to the Civil War.
In the mid 1600's, the colonies began to pass laws called slave codes which were intended to control the daily lives of slaves. These codes prohibited slaves from owning weapons, getting an education, meeting with other blacks without their owner's permission, and testifying against any white person in court. Slaves also received harsher punishments for many crimes than white people who committed the same crime. In my opinion, these codes were unnecessary considering the number of revolts that occurred in the Western Hemisphere. It all began in 1705, when the Virginia General Assembly made a declaration that would seal the fate of African Americans for generations to come.
Therefore, slaves demanded leaders of the revolution to follow their self proclaimed creed and abolish slavery. Due to the American Revolution many slaves had not only gained their freedom but well challenged the question of slavery in America. Period of American Revolution is extremely significant in American history. During these times young country went through many changes that forever impacted her history. It is hard to overestimate the effects of on a political, social, economic life of every citizen.
