Madison Washington was an American cook who started the most successful slave revolt in US history. On the night of Nov. 7, 1841, Washington led 17 enslaved men in a mutiny. Taking control of the Creole, they commanded that it be sailed to the Bahamas, which was under British control. Despite American protests, the British declared the slaves to be free persons under their law and refused American demands for their return. The British then took Washington and his 18 conspirators into custody under charges of mutiny and piracy. A special session of the Admiralty Court heard the case, but ruled in favour of the men and freed them in April 1842. The remaining 116 slaves had achieved freedom immediately in the preceding fall. As 128 slaves gained freedom resulting from this revolt, it is considered the most successful in United States history.
