Day 16: The Creole Case

Much like the slave ship Amistad, Creole had an uprising on the ship. The rebellion occurred and the enslaved forced the Captain to stop in the Bahamas. Everyone was freed, after a special hearing to determine if the mutineers should have been charged with piracy. They were found not guilty of piracy as a result of not taking over the shift for personal gain, but to fight for their freedom.

Cause knowledge is power. You either fight to live, or die trying.
