Bacon's Rebellion (jan 4, 1676 – jan 1, 1677)

Description:

- Jamestown, VA
- More indentured servants have been freed, are looking for land, but all the planters have taken the coastal land
- They try to get land west, but conflict with NA there
- VA governor refuses to approve their proposed genocide against the natives
- Bacon leads genocidal campaign anyway --> Governor says he's guilty of treason --> Bacon supporters burn down Jamestown
- King Charles II uses rebellion as an excuse to tighten control over VA

SHOWS SHIFT IN LABOR
- Main labor force in Chesapeake colonies switches to African slaves
- More valuable because they never have to
be freed and there are few indentured
servants left
