Summary
In 1839 the Federal courts became the stage for a drama involving enslaved Africans who led a revolt against their captors and sought to return to their homeland in West Africa. The case of the Amistad became the occasion for the judiciary to address issues related to the slave trade, the property claims of slaveholders, and the enslaved men's claim of personal liberty. The trials ended in their acquittal by the Supreme Court
