Massive slave fights in El Cobre




Massive slave fights in El Cobre

What occurred

Following unrest due to the Pact of Zanjon and the subsequent second war that broke out, the region of El Cobre experienced much fighting between the Spanish and slaves that had now rebelled to fight for their independence. This area saw a massive increase in the number of farms abandoned as large numbers of slaves fled to either join the revolution and fight or flee to try and escape slavery as well as battle. Due to the previous "Ten Years War" that had already exhausted the region, it was much safer for slaves to flee then it had been in prior years.
