"The treaty of Zanjon"

What occurred

The treaty of Zanjon freed only those slaves who had rebelled against Spain, leaving those who remained loyal to Spain enslaved. The treaty was created to solve the issues of emancipation but it produced opportunities for slaves to mount acts of open rebellion. The men at Zanjon had struck for peace under Spain over independence and emancipation, so they called for a continuation of war until both independence and full emancipation was secured.
