Nat Turner

Nat Turner was an African American slave who led a two-day rebellion of slaves and free blacks in Southampton County, Virginia in August 1831. The rebellion caused the death of approximately 60 white men, women, and children. Turner was captured, convicted, and executed. His actions had a lasting impact on the antebellum South, leading to harsher laws against slaves and free blacks and strengthening the resolve of Southern whites to support the institution of slavery. He is not traditionally known as an author, but his legacy includes 'The Confessions of Nat Turner', a document detailing his experiences and the rebellion, which was taken down by a lawyer named Thomas Ruffin Gray.
