NINE SLAVES HANGED FOR INSURRECTION
A slave woman named Lecide was freed by her master for revealing plans in Lafayette and St. Landry Parishes. Nine slaves were implicated and hanged. Four white men were also convicted, but the law excluded the testimony of blacks against whites, so they were severely flogged under a lynch law sentence and exiled from the state [Puckett, E. P. “Free Negroes in Louisiana”].
