What Prosser is Famous For
Prosser is famous for his rebellion for education, movement, and hiring out of the enslaved. He also had help with his rebellion from Jack Bowler and George Smith. Prosser had 26 other slaves in his rebellion with him. He planned to have the rebellion the night of August 30, 1800. But Prosser needed to Postpone the attack because that night the worst rainstorm hit and it flooded roads, washed out bridges, and prevented Prosser's army from assembling. So the attack had to wait until Aug. 31, 1800.
