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.
