Summary This is the story of a spectacular naval rebellion in which ordinary Brazilian seamen (mostly black and led by a black sailor) overpowered their officers on Dreadnought-class battleships in 1910, to abolish flogging and secure civic rights; it also tells how the sailors suffered lethal retribution, although flogging would never return
