Over the years, there have been stories of slaves revolting against their masters but since 1841, the Creole Rebellion has been making headlines as the most successful revolts of enslaved people in history.
Creole, a ship involved in the United States coastwise slave trade, was on November 7, 1841, transporting 135 enslaved people from Richmond, Virginia to the slave markets in New Orleans when 18 of the slaves attacked the crew, killing one of the slave traders aboard the ship and wounding the captain, Robert Ensor. It is said that Madison Washington, an enslaved cook in Virginia who had previously escaped to Canada, was the first to trigger the revolt.
