    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBProps to Rasmussen for researching and publicizing this incident of slave revolt But that's about the only good thing I have to say about this stiflingly simplistic retelling of what should have been a riveting and important storyStrike 1 Rasmussen's mantraWe will never really know He uses this line about every 10 pages before filling in whatever gap he's identified with a clumsily executed piece of parallel history Wondering what the leaders of the New Orleans revolt might have felt? Well they were slaves so they probably felt the same exact feelings that Olaudah Euiano felt a generation earlier in very different and partially fictionalized circumstances After all they were both black slaves CheckStrike 2 Rasumussen's writingThe tone ranges from cloying to earnest naivete with the worst offences coming when Rasmussen decides all too often to embellish the bare bones historical account with his own little flourishes like the rippling muscles of the slave men or haughty gaze of the

    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBI read this because a friend foisted it upon me so my enthusiasm was not high It's to the book's credit that I zoomed through it and found it pretty gripping The story of the short lived and unsuccessful uprising of New Orleans slaves in 1811 this was interesting and vividly written although it started out as a senior thesis project and uite a lot of it reads like a college paper I found the historical parts about the settling of Louisiana informative However too much of the reporting about the slave revolt consists of speculation by the author since as he keeps pointing out little is known about the individuals their thought processes etc The revolt itself is actually a pretty small part of the book which I found disappointing It's all left me somewhat depressed as far too many of the attitudes held towards black people 200 years ago are still hanging around the US today not as chang

    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBThere is so little information about what happened during that revolt it has been lost to history that the author could really only put together a few chapters around the uprising itself He couldn't give details about the people who led the revolt why they did it how they made it work what it was like He could only report on how the white planters responded to it So to market the book as a insiders story of the rev

    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBTom Emory Jr Review American Uprising is disappointing As history it's subject to the Noble NegroWhite Savage bias of the author who I believe willfully lacks an understanding of the plantation south and its centuries of development The story is of the 1811 German Coast Slave Revolt just north of New Orleans Louisiana and its very short life and expected finish with the slaves being defeated uickly and executed rapidly Slavery in whatever form is heinous But the author's failure to understand and develop the history of plantation south isn't very pretty either There is a lack of depth here both intellectually and historicallyAuthor Daniel Rasmussen writes that upwards of 500 slaves joined in the three day revolt against their owners and local population Multiple o

    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBWhy bother reading about a slave revolt from 200 years ago? I grew up with the fable that American expansionism ie Manifest Destiny was motivated by a god given duty to spread our nonviolent democratic institutions from sea to shining sea Daniel Rasmussen's book makes a convincing connection between American expansionism and preserving the Southern way of life otherwise known as slavery based agriculture Rasmussen details the atrocities a priviliged class will go through to keep a lower class under control to their benefit The New Orleans planters put down the rebellion violently and they wrote the rebels into history as petty criminals for centuries Meanwhile violence was a necessary recourse for slaves whose freedom was supressed by violence though the vision of the 1811 rebels was not fully realized until blacks' role in the Union's Civil War effort The

    PDF/EPUB Daniel Rasmussen ´ American Uprising eBook ê ´ american book, uprising kindle, American Uprising PDF/EPUBThere is no uestion that Dan Rasmussen must be commended for bringing to light the hidden history of this incredible and inspiring uprising of Louisiana maroons in 1811 There were times when I felt he made too great an effort to be even handed ie sympathetic to the plantation owners and slaveholders and it was frustrating for me to hear how dismissive and condescending he was towards Marxists and Communists who shared his goal of raising the rebel slaves up as heroes saying things like Tossed from white supremacists to Marxist activists the actual history of the 1811 uprising fell by the wayside among ideological battles over race and politics but the fact that this bo
