The Strange Path of the Trelawny Maroons

Almost from the moment African slaves were taken to Jamaica, they started escaping into the mountains of the island's interior. The Jamaican Maroons held off the British, but the Maroons of Trelawny Town would be given a unique path. The History Guy recalls the story of escaped slaves and warriors whose unique culture and history still affects societies on both sides of the Atlantic.
