The slave revolt on St. John in 1733 marks one of the earliest uprisings by enslaved African peoples in the Americas. The island of St. Thomas was historically recognized as a slave-trading hub,which attracted a cosmopolitan group of settlers. The enslaved uprisings of 1848, which led to the abolition of slavery in the Danish West Indies, coincided with a network of planned uprisings that included the islands of Martinique, Gudaeloupe, St. Croix, and Ponce, Puerto Rico.
