The Morant Bay Rebellion (Jamaica)
The Morant Bay rebellion began when Paul Bogle led more than 200 black men and women into the town of Morant Bay, Jamaica in protest of an arrest. The group was fired on at the Court House and the black then rioted killing 18 people and seizing the town.
Troops were sent after Bogle and his men and in the end over 800 black were killed by troops and executed. The rebellion became a major turning point in Jamaica's history.
