Nathaniel Bacon (January 2, 1647 – October 26, 1676) was a colonist of the Virginia Colony.
Nathaniel Bacon and a group of so-called “freeholders” on the Virginia frontier demanded that Native Americans living on treaty-protected lands be driven out or killed.
Later they raided a Native American settlement and killed some thirty natives.
Then they surrounded and attacked a fortified Susquehannock village, killing the chiefs.
The Susquehannocks retaliated in force, attacking plantations and killing 60 settlers.
Bacon mustered a force of 400-500 men and attacked the Doeg and Pamunkey Native tribes.
The rebellion collapsed when Nathaniel Bacon died from dysentery.
