The British established a colony in Barbados in 1627, and started the cultivation of tobacco and cotton. However, during the 1640s, they started sugar plantations, which brought them handsome profits.
Barbados is an island nation surrounded completely by the Atlantic Ocean. It belongs to the Lesser Antilles (a group of islands in North America).
Bussa’s Rebellion (14–16 April 1816) was the largest slave revolt in Barbadian history. The rebellion takes its name from the African-born slave, Bussa, who led the rebellion.
