Letters and reports written to Admiral Graham Eden Hamond or forwarded to his attention, regarding the beginning of the Cabanagem revolt in the Brazilian region of Grão-Pará in 1835.
The Cabanagem revolt was an 1835 separatist movement in the northern Brazilian region of Grão-Pará (now Pará). Rebels, known as cabanos, were an alliance between middle class secessionists and the mostly Black and Indigenous or mixed ancestry settlers who lived in relative poverty in the region. An attempt to establish independence from Brazil and Portugal, the movement resulted in the deaths of an estimated 40,000 combatants and civilians. Sir Graham Eden Hamond (1779-1862, 2nd Baronet), was an admiral of the British Royal Navy and Commander-in-Chief of the South America Station from 1834 to 1838.
