Chapter Summary

Rebellion and issues of inclusion, exclusion, and reconciliation have a long tradition on the Guinea/Sierra Leone Coast. This chapter focuses upon three slave rebellions of the late eighteenth century and during the heyday of the Atlantic slave trade and relates them to contemporary periods of regional turmoil and political dysfunction. Between 1793/94 and 1796 the landholders in the newly-established alliance consolidated control of their own regions and peoples and reduced the territory held by the Yangekori rebels through a war of attrition and siege. Ormond was one of the merchants who had been ordered to appear before the Mahdi during his brief period of dominance in Moria before 1791.

Keywords: eighteenth century; Guinea/Sierra Leone Coast; Ormond; rebellion; Yangekori rebels
