Wikipedia

  1. nat turner

    Nat Turner's Rebellion, historically known as the Southampton Insurrection, was a rebellion of enslaved Virginians that took place in Southampton County, Virginia, in August 1831. Led by Nat Turner, the rebels killed between 55 and 65 White people, making it the deadliest slave revolt in U.S. history. The rebellion was effectively suppressed within a few days, at Belmont Plantation on the morning of August 23, but Turner survived in hiding for more than two months afterward.There was widespread fear amongst the White population in the aftermath of the rebellion. Militia and mobs killed as many as 120 enslaved people and freed African Americans in retaliation. After trials, the Commonwealth of Virginia executed 56 enslaved people accused of participating in the rebellion, including Turner himself; many Black people who had not participated were also persecuted in the frenzy. Because Turner was educated and was a preacher, Southern state legislatures subsequently passed new laws prohibiting the education of enslaved people and free Black people, restricting rights of assembly and other civil liberties for free Black people, and requiring White ministers to be present at all worship services.Lonnie Bunch, director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, said, "The Nat Turner rebellion is probably the most significant uprising in American history."

  1. nat turner

    Nat Turner (1800–1831) was an enslaved African American who led a rebellion of enslaved people in Virginia in 1831, commonly known as Turner's Rebellion. Born into slavery, Turner became a preacher and claimed he had visions from God directing him to seek freedom. His rebellion, which resulted in the death of about 60 white inhabitants, was one of the most significant instances of resistance by enslaved people in the Southern United States. Turner's action set off a new wave of oppressive legislation prohibiting the education, movement, and assembly of enslaved people.
