During the summer of 1800, slaves in and around Richmond, Virginia, conspired to overthrow slavery. This book uses Gabriel's Conspiracy, and the evidence produced during its repression, to expose the processes through which Virginians of African descent built an oppositional culture. Here is an altogether fascinating, alternative interpretation of the Virginia that was home to many of our Founding Fathers. Line diagrams. Maps. Tables.
