Bacon’s Rebellions of 1676 is one of the important historical events in the history of Virginia and the U.S. at large. However, the event has been marred with conflicting accounts of what happened and the factors that influenced it, leading to the interest of scholars in trying to study and address gaps in history. For many years, the Bacon rebellions were considered a revolutionary event that tried to free Americans from the chains of colonialism and brutality. Historians credited the event for being the early expression of revolutionary sentiments in America that set the ground for the American Revolution.
