In 1676 the colony became embroiled in the popular uprising known as Bacon's Rebellion. Frontier settlers
whose homesteads were attacked by hostile Indians, asked Governor Berkeley's government for protection. Fearful and frustrated by the lack of protection, they persuaded young Nathaniel Bacon to lead an expedition against the Indians. Setting out in defiance of authority, he killed Indians indiscriminately, making no distinction between friend and foe. Later, Bacon and his men seized Green Spring and put Jamestown, the capital city, to torch. After the rebel leader's death in October, Governor Berkeley gained the upper hand. Some of Bacon's followers were put on trial at Green Spring and hanged.
