aggers and pikes. On a fixed date they were to arrive in Charleston, as was the custom of many on Sundays, and upon a signal were to act in concert and seize the forts and the city. This plot was divulged by a negro, who had been urged to join it, on May 25, 1822. The principal conspirators were immediately apprehended, but so successfully pretended to know nothing of the affair that they were freed. On June 16 another attempt was made to put the plot into execution, but it was soon suppressed and the leaders arrested. They were tried on June 19. Five were first hanged, and later twenty-nine others met the same fate, but all excepting one maintained complete secrecy to the end. On July 2, the day on which Vesey was executed, another attempt at insurrection was made, but the State troops held the slaves in check. So determined, however, were they to strike a blow for liberty that it was found necessary for the federal government to send soldiers to Charleston to maintain order.
