NATIONAL HEROES

Julian Fedon

*

In 1795, Fedon, a mulatto planter who felt inspired by the French Revolution, staged a violent rebellion against the British importation of a large number of slaves. Fedon’s leadership allowed the slaves to take control of Grenada for a short period of time. By 1834, slavery was abolished. The site of Fedon’s camp in Grenada’s mountains is a popular memorable location in Grenadian history.
