(Just read about this in Edward Baptist's "The Half Has Never Been 
Told". I had no idea.)

The 1811 German Coast uprising was a revolt of black slaves in parts of 
the Territory of Orleans on January 8–10, 1811. The uprising occurred on 
the east bank of the Mississippi River in what is now St. John the 
Baptist, St. Charles and Jefferson Parishes, Louisiana.[1] While the 
slave insurgency was the largest in US history, the rebels killed only 
two white men. Confrontations with militia and executions after trial 
killed 95 black people.
