7 Incredible Facts About the Stono Rebellion

The Aftermath of the Stono Rebellion

Stono1 (blackpast.org)
The Stono Rebellion, or Cato’s Rebellion, took place on Sept. 9, 1739, on the Stono River in South Carolina. This was the largest rebellion mounted by enslaved people in colonial America. It is believed that many enslaved people acted in order to reach St. Augustine, Florida. There, the Spanish offered freedom and land to all escaped enslaved people.

The Security Act of 1739 was passed to ensure that enslaved African-Americans would not rebel on Sundays. The law stated that plantation owners must carry weapons to church on Sundays in South Carolina.
