Bacon's Rebellion at Jamestown Settlement

The story of “Bacon’s Rebellion” – a 1676 armed rebellion of Virginia colonists led by Nathaniel Bacon against the rule of Governor William Berkeley is shared as part of the Jamestown Settlement museum experience. The 13-minute film extends the Jamestown story into the latter 17th century, concentrating on the causes and effects of the rebellion, and also features special effects, including smoke, wind, theatrical lighting and faux fire, shown during the burning of Jamestown. Learn about Sarah Grendon, Emmanuel Cambo, and Cockacoeske, whose stories offer a human connection and continue in short video projections on re-created houses in immersive exhibit galleries. Produced by Cortina Productions in partnership with the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation. Debuted at Jamestown Settlement on September 2019 and adapted in May 2020 for at-home viewing on Master Single Screen (1080p 20mbps).
