Foley Square. New York, NY. In 1741, in response to what was believed to be a plot to burn down New York City, 34 people were executed at what is now called, Foley Square. A 1744 account of the event was titled, “A Journal of the Proceedings in the Detection of the Conspiracy Formed by Some White People, in Conjunction with Negro and Other Slaves for Burning the City of New-York in America.” Over time, the events were remembered more simply, if at all, as “The Great Negro Plot.”
