Reenactors remember 1811 slave rebellion

Reenactors remember 1811 slave rebellion

In 1811, a group of roughly 200 to 500 slaves from sugar plantations in southeastern Louisiana rose up against their enslavers, the largest slave rebellion in American history. On Friday, hundreds of reenactors gathered to remember the time when slavery flourished as a blight on America. Dressed in period costumes and holding machetes or rifles they are marching 26 miles over two days.

When will they have a remembrance for the day that black people sold other black people as slaves. Oh shit I forgot it still happens in Africa 🤦🏽‍♂️

I'm not sure remember is the order you're looking for.

Too bad none of the "rememberers" were actually alive in 1811.
