Best Answer

Baconâ??s Rebellion was a result of colonists conflict with both Native Americans as well as the governor. Colonists demanded that Powhatan tribes be forcibly removed from their own lands which defied a British treaty with the native people. When Governor, Sir William Berkeley refused, Nathan Bacon and his men invaded and massacred everyone in an Powhatan village, including women and children. Claiming Berkeley failed to protect colonists, levied unfair taxes and other grievances, Bacon and his men rebelled, burning the state house to the ground and ransacking Berkeleyâ??s belongings.
