This updated tale of courage and daring is based on the Creole mutiny, November 7, 1841. It is perhaps the largest and only successful slave revolt in the history of that vile system.

Madison Washington, a slave, led this rebellion. He symbolizes the suffering and the gallantry of African Americans and their early struggles for freedom. This fictionalized account of Madison Washington, the slave who inspired the mutiny aboard the brig Creole, will enrage you at the injustices of slavery, but it will also warm your heart by the love and camaraderie shown by the slaves toward one another.There is not much known about the day to day life of Madison Washington.

That he was of great physical stature, was eloquent in his speech, did in fact cause a rebellion aboard the Creole and sailed to the Bahamas where he was imprisoned and sentenced to hang, are indisputable facts. That he had previously escaped from slavery traveled to Canada and voluntarily returned to the south in order to rescue his beautiful wife, is also well documented.The audacity of Madison Washington is briefly mentioned in Frederick Douglas’, The Heroic Slave, Autographs for Freedom, and there is some mention of him in Henry Wilson’s, History of The Rise and Fall of the Slave Power in America.

Old newspaper accounts, court records, and a bit of scholarly research afford us the opportunity to wrap the actual events of this monumental event around a fictionalized account of Madison Washington, the man.His story will thrill you! He is bold, determined, and daring. Taken into custody and sentenced to hang, he powerfully articulates the value of a Black man and proves the sheer senselessness of slavery. Come with Madison as he breaks free from human bondage and takes 140 of his fellow slaves into a life of freedom.
