the perfect slave ship rebellion

 

In 1764, Capt. George Faggot, commander of a New London ship from Connecticut, and his crew suffered a deadly fate when trying to leave Senegal with captive Africans.

According to a report, after the captain purchased the African captives at Goree Island in Dakar, an uprising followed a few hours later.  As the ship was still docked into the night,  the Africans managed to free themselves  from chains and shackles, subsequently attacking the captain and his crew.  The  Africans reportedly used large pieces of wood and other materials found on the ship and clubbed the captain and members of his crew to death.

After the slaughtering of the white slavers, the Africans left the ship and disappeared into the night.
