Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This textbook offers the complete text of the actual confessions of Nat Turner, the Virginia slave preacher who in 1831 led the bloodiest slave revolt in US history. An introduction provides the historical context for the revolt and allows students to consider problems suggested by the document. Additional sources include Southern editorials, which give students a sense of contemporary white reaction to slave uprisings. The volume also includes questions to consider.

Synopsis:

Careful study of the Nat Turner slave rebellion of 1831 reveals much about master, slaves, and the relationship between them in the antebellum South. The central document in this volume — Nat Turner's confession follwing the rebellion in Virginia — is supported by newspaper articles, trial transcripts, and excerpts from the diary of Virginia governor John Floyd.
