Celia, A Slave, Trial (1855) For nineteen-year-old Celia, a Slave on a Missouri farm, five years of being repeatedly raped by her middle-aged owner was enough. On the night of June 23, 1855, she would later tell a reporter, "the Devil got into me" and she fatally clubbed her master as he approached her in her cabin. The murder trial of the slave Celia, raised questions about the rights of Slaves to fight back against the worst of Slavery's abuses. Celia died on the gallows Dec. 21, 1855.
