Bacon's Rebellion

Bacon's Rebellion was a rebellion in 1676 against the Governor William Berkeley. After English settlers arrived in Virginia, the native Americans were forced off the land, so many went looking for new places to live. However, most colonists didn't own land, so the poor English and slave colonist rebelled against the governor and the landowning supporters. The poor English and slave colonists thought worse should be put forth on the Native Americans so that there could be more land available for the landless English.
