review Denmark Vesey: The Buried Story of America's Largest Slave Rebellion and the Man Who Led It ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Na take the city's arsenal murder the populace burn the city and escape by ship to Haiti or Africa When the uprising was betrayed Vesey and seventy seven of his followers were executed the matter hushed by Charleston's elite for fear of further rebellion Compelling informative and often disturbing this book is essential to a fuller understanding of the struggle against slaver. Although much of the evidence about Denmark Vesey s revolt was destroyed David Robertson rolled with what he had and produced a plausible account of what happened in Charleston SC After reading this book I went to Charleston for the second time and saw the city in a different light Back in the day the city was not uaint or picturesue it was hell for black people slave and free After reading this I better understand why Mother Emanuel Church was a target of racial hate and I want to read about Denmark Vesey Kudos to David Robertson

review Denmark Vesey: The Buried Story of America's Largest Slave Rebellion and the Man Who Led It ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub In a remarkable feat of historical detective work David Robertson illuminates the shadowy figure who planned a slave rebellion so daring that if successful it might have changed the face of the antebellum South This is the story of a man who like Nat Turner Marcus Garvey and Malcolm X is a complex yet seminal hero in the history of African American emancipationDenmark Vesey w. The History I read of this Country the I seem to read about South Carolina I am not a concentrated reader of The Civil War and while South Carolina played key roles in that conflict it also was the locale of a number of additional notable events in this Country s History If I were to pick one State the approximate vintage of South Carolina I cannot make a better argument for a single State that was as independently oriented and that defended its independence from influence outside its borders and defended it with even greater passion from any Federal influence To the very present South Carolina has been expressing the same theme through the issue of what Flag they will fly over their Capital and who the decision will be made by A decision was reached the flag may no longer fly over the Capital but it shall fly not far from itDenmark Vesey s birthplace is unknown contrary to the conflicting commercial reviews From the book It is not confirmable whether Vesey was born in Africa or The West Indies If there is a consistent thread through the book it is how much is not known about this man who attempted what would have been a massive Rebellion Slave in makeup or otherwise composed This is not to say the book is not well done uite the contrary I believe that the documentation achieved by Mr David Robinson is nothing short of remarkable when the effort to destroy all remnants of the rebellion is considered The book loses no credibility because we don t know from what tree he was executed nor where his body was finally buried These issues are legend than they will ever be fact but these issues do not change the heart of the event and the facts of what took place Even Mr Vesey s appearance is unknown except for the most impressionistic of drawings the man visually is an enigmaThe story as related is brief 153 pages But as evidenced by photographs and 40 pages of notes the Historical detective work was clearly done The Author presents what he knows makes very little speculation and to the extent he does he places his feelings in a distinct chapter A Personal ConclusionStaying away from the story so as not to spoil it there was however an aspect of the South in 1822 that I had never read about in such detail There were not 2 groups there were many Slaves freed slaves like Mr Vesey and very defined and distinct groups among the black and white Communities The distinctions amongst the people that Vesey wished to lead were the same that lead to his rebellions defeatIt is necessarily a brief story unless information comes to light With the material at hand and the documentation the Author found I believe he did a very credible job of relating a relatively unknown event in our HistoryThe uestion of what would have happened had Vesey succeeded and the implications on this Country are not to be found in the book nor do I believe it would be appropriate for such counter factual debate to be placed in a Historical work The what if scenarios are varied and certainly would have been momentous However History did not take place as Mr Vesey planned and the historical record was systematically destroyed to the extent possibleWhat is important is that Denmark Vesey and other leaders like him take their place in our Historical record Whether positive negative or aborted events like these must be recounted or our History is incomplete
