CHOICE Review

Had it succeeded, the Charleston slave rebellion of 1822 would have been the most extensive slave uprising in American history. Led by Denmark Vesey, a free black man, the plot's complexity and vastness sent shock waves throughout the slave-owning states. Many books on the case have been published, including those containing trial documents and other primary sources. However, Egerton (Le Moyne College) and Paquette (Alexander Hamilton Institute) endeavor in their study to "reproduce and interpret all documents relevant" to events before, during, and after the affair, providing copious annotations and thus needed context and clarification. The body of the work, issued in the publisher's "Southern Dissent" series, consists of a detailed time line with materials organized into six parts. The first, "Preconditions," sets the scene in Charleston, detailing the mood of blacks and whites and Vesey's background; "Proceedings" features the uncovered plot, arrests of participants, and debates on the process. Subsequent sections treat trial documents, eyewitness accounts, and chronicles of events outside the trials, with the largest section, "Aftermath," covering blowback that colored the societal and legislative narrative for decades leading up to the Civil War. Finally, in "Recollections and Memorializations," the recounting or reimagining of events by blacks and whites makes this a truly invaluable collocation of documents. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Undergraduates through researchers/faculty. --Brent D. Singleton, California State University--San Bernardino
