Question:

Why was Bacon's Rebellion a turning point for the status and rights of people of African descent in Virginia? What Motivated Virginia's lawmakers to make legal distinctions between white and black inhabitants? What effect did those distinctions have on Virginia's universe of obligation? How does the history of Bacon's Rebellion complicate your understanding of the history of racism and slavery in North America?

Catherine W.

Bacon's Rebellion was put forth all due to the fact that Bacon was denied militia support when attempting to conquer Native American land. He was attempting to do exactly what planter elites were doing, taking land and making people work on their plantations. At this point in time, it did not matter the color of one's skin, as long as you had less power than a planter elite and could work for them, you were seen as useful to them. Because Bacon was denied access to support from the militia he went on a rampage and destroyed what he could in order to overthrow the planter elite; which inspired the alliance between black and white servants, including slaves, to revolt. This was the last thing the planter elites wanted, so they strategized to make slavery racial. They focused more on importing slaves from Africa because they didn't know the European language or culture, which meant they could not communicate with the European laborers. They then began to give the white laborers more privileges than the African slaves. This created a wedge between the white European servants and the black slaves. Eventually, the white servants saw themselves as superior and this is when the aspect of slavery became racial. Slavery did not start out as a racial aspect, but through the planter elite's strategy for no more laborer rebellions, they made it become racial.
