Eric Blair Presents – Daily Knowledge: Nat Turner (Day 18)

Eric Blair Presents – Daily Knowledge: Nat Turner (Day 18)

Nat Turner was an American slave who led a slave rebellion in Virginia on August 21, 1831 that resulted in 56 deaths among their victims, the largest number of white fatalities to occur in one uprising prior to the American Civil War in the southern United States. He gathered supporters in Southampton County, Virginia. Turner’s killing of whites during the uprising makes his legacy controversial. For his actions, Turner was convicted, sentenced to death, and executed. In the aftermath, the state executed 56 Blacks accused of being part of Turner’s slave rebellion. Two hundred Blacks were also beaten and killed by white militias and mobs reacting with violence. Across Virginia and other southern states, state legislators passed new laws prohibiting education of slaves and free Blacks, restricting rights of assembly and other civil rights for free Blacks, and requiring white ministers to be present black worship services.
