7 Andry referred to what followed as “une grande carnage”—a great slaughter. 8 Those who survived the initial encounter fled into the swamp at the back of Bernoudi’s fields. The wounded were murdered where they fell; their bodies, mutilated. The survivors were hunted down over the next few days. 9 Twenty-Â�one were conveyed to the Destrehan plantation, where they were tried on the lawn by a jury composed of leading planters, and sentenced to death. 12 The heads of those executed at Destrehan were put up on pikes along the levee between New Orleans and the German Coast.
Andry had taken refuge in the household of a planter named Charles Perret, who began on the night of JanuaryÂ€8 to warn the slaveholders on the river’s west bank about the rebellion that was occurring on its eastern shores. By the morning of the tenth, he had raised an army of his own, eighty or so men—planters, whites, free people of color—and crossed the river above Fortier’s plantation, surprising Deslondes’s army. “We saw the enemy at a very short distance, number about 200 men, as many mounted as on foot,” Perret later wrote.
These firms maintained ofÂ�fices, complete with high-Â�walled jails that could house as many as a hundred slaves at a time, large yards where the human property could be exercised, and showrooms where interested buyers could question and examine the people they hoped to purchase, at both ends of the trade. 69 In order to make sure that they could count on a price differential sufÂ�fiÂ�cient to justify the effort and expense of dragging as many as a hundred unwilling and potentially rebellious slaves on a weeks-Â�long journey across the backcountry or on a lonely sea journey around the Atlantic coast, the larger firms and even simpler two-Â�person partnerships mailed one another frequent reports on the condition of the slave market at either end of the trade.
