One of the most suppressed and hidden stories of African and African American history is the 1811 Slave Revolt. The largest slave revolt in the United States but least known.


Most may be familiar with Nat Turner or Denmark Vesey, but few are knowledgeable about Charles Deslonde, the leader of the 1811 Slave Revolt. Deslonde and his lieutenants were brilliant people. Like in Haiti, the aim was to abolish slavery and establish a free republic to be governed by the formerly enslaved.


The tour enlightens on how Deslonde’s rebels carried out the revolt. Visit the locations where they fought U.S. troops and militia. Discover the gains and foundation for the Civil War.


Learn about the descendants of the rebels who would defeat the slaveholders and the system of chattel slavery making history come alive.
