Bacon's Rebellion
In 1676, about 1,000 Virginians broke out of control - led by a 29-year-old planter, Nathaniel Bacon. They fiercely resented Virginia's Governor William Berkeley for his friendly policies towards the Indians. When Berkeley refused to retaliate for a series of savage Indian attacks on frontier settlements (due to his monopolization of the fur trading with them), the crowd took matters into their own hands.
When Bacon died of disease, Berkeley finally ended the uprising. It caused the govt. to look to Africa for slaves for less troublesome workers.
