Fedon’s Camp

In 1795 British control of Grenada was seriously challenged by Julian Fedon, a black planter inspired by the French Revolution. Under his leadership the island’s slaves rose up in a violent rebellion, effectively taking control of Grenada. Although the rebellion was crushed by the British, tensions remained high until slavery was abolished in 1834. The site of Fedon’s Camp, high up in Grenada’s beautiful central mountains, is today a popular destination for hikers.
