Denmark Vesey was born on the island of St. Thomas and most likely spent much of his adolescent and young adult years sailing between the Eastern United States and the islands in the Caribbean, like Haiti. By 1822, Vesey had used the winnings from a lottery to buy his freedom but his motivation for liberation did not end with himself.
