Summary

This brief 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 extensive introduction provides the historical context for the revolt and allows students to consider broad 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 a bibliography, questions to consider, a chronology, and an index.
