Friday May 23rd 1969 — Saturday June 7th 1969

Based on the Gabriel Prosser rebellion in Virginia in 1800. Gabriel led 1,000 slaves on a surprise attack on Richmond. James Monroe was governor. God was on the other side and the bridge where they had gathered was washed out by a torrential downpour. Gabriel had to send his troops back to their plantations before they were missed. Someone lost his nerve and gave the plot away. When Gabriel attacks the next night the militia is waiting.
