Most of the early slave revolts in the American Colonies were not recorded. It might be impossible to determine the first. This site has a timeline dealing with slavery and slave revolts. 1522 Slave Revolt: the Caribbean Slaves rebel on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, which now comprises Haiti and the Dominican Republic. 1739 about 20 slaves from the Stono plantation near Charleston seized guns, killed several planter families, and put out a call for other blacks to join the revolt. Most were captured but some managed to reach St. Augustine, in Florida, which was under Spanish control.
