Historic Charleston & Resort Islands

On September 9 & 10, 1739 an Angolan slave by the name of Jemmy led 80 slaves from area plantations marching toward St. Augustine, Florida expecting freedom. After attacking a warehouse to seize weapons, burning homes, buildings and killing whites, a militia apprehended the group and almost thirty-four slaves were killed. These revolts lead to the passage of the most comprehensive slave codes in the English Colonies, which remained in place until the end of the Civil War.
