50. Slave rebellions and reporting
Reporting of slave rebellions in the US in the 19th Century were heavily censored after Nat Turner's rebellion, esp. in the South (of course!) and censorship laws were passed. Also, PC reporting rules were in place (PC is hardly a new concept, just a new term) claiming that Indians attacked or slaves were "captured" by Indians in order to placate the status quo. Because of this, slave rebellions go unreported and unstudied by present-day historians.
