an example of the dichotomy of people who were trained in an applied science manner vs. a pure science manner
in the former, you feel very smart and accomplished because you know a bunch of stuff
in the latter, you realize how insignificant you are in the grand scheme of it all
more likely, the slaves rebelled, were unable to find weapons besides hand tools, chased the white slavers out and wanted to just be left alone
and the whites realized a free black community succeeding with few casualties would have devastated the institution of slavery
it would have been embarrassing, shameful that the whites were driven out with just hand tools and a mild beating
the whites had to cast the rebels as "bandits" who needed to be put down in the most extreme methods possible
The militia finds about 200 rebels at Bernoudy's plantation, likely unarmed and gathered, and they open fire on them
the white history is supposedly that the rebels return fire and there's a pitched battle, and yet all the casualties are on the rebel side, 40-45 rebel slaves died, and the rest flee into the woods. 50 more are chased down and executed, including brutal torture, to send a message
ultimately only 2 plantation slavers died, one, Andry's son who showed up with a sword, and another François Trépagnier. White slavers recount being told to leave by their slaves, the rebels plan on driving them out, and declaring their own independent republic
the escaped white slavers alert the militia, and several hundred including supposedly Col. Andry, nearly mortally wounded, is now leading an army?
like supposedly 20 rebellious slaves surrounded a sleeping Manuel Andry, a veteran soldier, with axes and knives, and nearly kill him but he gets away? that doesn't track. as they speculate, he was exaggerating, they beat him for being a slaver, but not with intent to kill
Slavery was not a stable system, if you look it up, there are constant revolts all over. And the history, was written by the white slavemasters who suppressed them later
oooo lightweight flapper locked, intermediate cartridge squad automatic weapon with a higher rate of fire than reported on paper
sure wish my health class woulda taught me what that T in LGBT meant like 20 years ago
"i mean, i would sure like to be a lesbian like a suspiciously large number of my friends in high school but like being a trans woman means you gotta like boys so i can't be that"
"time to not consider or think on this seriously for 15 years"
