Daniel Rasmussen recalls the largest slave revolt in American history. On January 8, 1811, 500 slaves in military uniforms and equipped with assorted weapons embarked on taking New Orleans. The author reports on their march upon the city and the outcome -- over one hundred slaves were killed and the event deliberately excluded from many historical accounts of the time. Daniel Rasmussen discussed his book at Garden District Book Shop in New Orleans. close
