I am embarrassed to say that I had never heard of Denmark Vesey before reading this book He was a remarkable man According to the report from his trial he was born into slavery in St Thomas then a Denmark colony purchased as a young adolescent by Joseph Vesey a sea captain and slave merchant and then sold to a planter in French Saint Domingue Haiti This was a brutal life and Vesey escaped it by likely faking epileptic fits there is no record of Vesey having epileptic seizures later on Capt Vesey reclaimed Vesey returned the purchase price and used Vesey as a personal assistant and interpreter in his slave trading Vesey was fluent in at least three languages literate and a skilled carpenter a trade that led to his freedomRobertson paints a detailed picture of Charleston SC where Capt Vesey eventually settled Vesey still his slave where by the early 18th century blacks the vast majority of whom were enslaved outnumbered whites The tensions inherent in a society and economy that was predicated on the minority whites bondage of the majority Africans and their descendants are clearly depicted In the late 18th and early 19th centuries it must have been a brutal place to live if blackRobertson s thesis is that white Charleston did everything it could to erase Vesey and his rebellion A lot of what Robertson writes is convincing the absence of any contemporary depictions of Vesey s appearance the minimization of what Vesey attempted in contemporaneous newspapers and the suppression of the trial records which themselves suppressed Vesey s voice and motives written as they were by the white slave owning judges all make it difficult to get a handle on the interior life of Denmark VeseyWhat we know is that he purchased his freedom with the money he won in a lottery having purchased a ticket with funds he earned as a carpenter hired out by his owner one glaring omission in the book is Robertson s failure to explain why Vesey s lottery winnings were not given to his owner Capt Vesey was there some law that gave Vesey then himself property a property interest in the winnings Did Capt Vesey have a legal right to the funds but let Vesey keep them or enough to buy his freedom Robertson is silent on these uestions We know also that he lived another 22 years as a free man running a carpentry business helping to found the AME Church in Charleston and associating far with slaves than other free blacks We know that he was willing to risk his freedom and his life in an effort to free the slaves of greater Charleston and that he displayed tremendous courage and resolve when arrested charged and eventually executedBut we don t know why he was willing to take such an extraordinary risk According to his Wikipedia entry Vesey s wife and children were slaves and he was unable to purchase their freedom Oddly Robertson glosses over this instead focusing on the fact that Vesey was reported to have many wives in various areas with children by many of those women Robertson also doesn t mention that two years before the attempted uprising South Carolina banned private manumissions freeing of slaves Vesey isn t an easy figure for whites to cheer as his planned uprising contemplated in fact reuired the killing of Charleston s white population including children in order for the slaves to escape to the ships and freedom in Haiti or Africa It seems a cold blooded and brutal plan and it s hard to endorse but slavery was a cold blooded and brutal system that was endorsed and enforced by that same white population What other options did Vesey and his followers have if they wanted to be freeObviously Vesey didn t succeed but his audacious vision and plan coupled with his intelligence apparent charisma and extraordinary courage in the face of horrible torture make him a compelling and in my mind admirable figure
