2010 HSNCT round 6 wrote:An account of this man was written by James Hamilton, though Hamilton may have simply wanted to embarrass Governor Thomas Bennett. He worked with Monday Gell and Gullah Jack but was foiled after the betrayal of George Wilson. His best-known plan was scheduled for Bastille Day and involved a ship to transport participants to (*) Haiti. For 10 points--name this freed slave who in 1822 tried to lead a rebellion in Charleston.
I have no idea what drew 46 negs on this tossup. I'd expect some rate of minus-fives on this topic just from teams that figure out it's a slave rebellion but only know Nat Turner, but there are lots of clues here that exclude Turner (eg, "Gullah" points to the South Carolina low country... and still no one powered this.)
