Virginia Memory: Death or Liberty: Gabriel's Rebellion

Curated by ACT

This lesson explores the Gabriel Rebellion of 1800 where an intended slave rebellion led by a slave never got off the ground due to the extreme weather that disrupted plans. Gabriel, the slave, was literate and was influenced by revolutionary ideas about freedom and liberty. (Gabriel is sometimes referred to as Gabriel Prosser because his owner's name was Thomas Prosser.)
