Nat Turner

Nat Turner is known for leading Nat Turner's slave rebellion (Southampton Insurrection). He lived his entire life in the Southampton, Virginia, where he was born into slavery. The uprising and its aftermath were low points in an already dark point of American history. Nat Turner approved of questionable tactics, and in the uprising encouraged the killing of women and children. Many children met very violent deaths. After the uprising, mobs of whites killed many innocent slaves that were not involved in the rebellion as retribution. Harsher slave laws were passed as a direct result, and literacy among blacks was outlawed in the state of Virginia. Nat Turner himself was hung two months after the uprising.

Why was Nat Turner's work so important?

Nat Turner was an American slave who led a slave rebellion in Virginia, an uprising unprecedented until the American Civil War. Before the Nat Turner Revolt, there was a minute antislavery movement in Virginia and little or no organized resistance; the revolt "marked a turning point in the Black struggle for liberation" as argued by historical writer James H. Harris. The repercussions of the rebellion also had an adverse impact on slavery because it invoked fear among slave owners and even polarized moderates of the slavery issue. The region instituted repressive policies against blacks, both free and enslaved.

Who led the bloody slave uprising in Virginia in August 1830?

== == You may be surprised to learn the first uprising was actually in 1800 by Gabriel Prosser. Born circa 1775, near Richmond, VA. Died September 1800, Richmond, VA. He was an American slave who planned the first major slave rebellion in U.S. history (Aug. 30, 1800). His abortive revolt greatly increased the white's fear of the slave population throughout the South. The son of an African-born mother, Gabriel grew up as the slave of Thomas H. Posser. Gabriel became a deeply religious man, strongly influenced by biblical example. In the spring and summer of 1800, he laid plans for a slave insurrection aimed at creating an independent black state in Virginia with himself as king. He planned a 3 pronged attack on Richmond, VA, that would seize the arsenal, take the powder house, and kill all whites except Frenchmen, Methodists, and Quakers. Some historians believe that Gabriel's army of 1,000 slaves (estimates range from 2,000 to 50,000), assembled 6 miles outside the city on the appointed night, might have succeeded had it not been for a violent rainstorm that washed out bridges and inundated roads. Before the rebel forces could be reassembled, Governor James Monroe was informed of the plot and ordered out the state militia. Gabriel and about 34 of his companions were subsequently arrested, tried and hanged. 1831 NAT TURNER Born Oct. 2, 1800, Southampton county, VA, Died Nov. 11, 1831, Jerusalem, VA. American slave who let the only effective, sustained slave rebellion (August 1831) in U.S. history. Spreading terror throughout the white South, his action set off a new wave of oppressive legislation prohibiting the education, movement, and assembly of slaves and stiffened proslavery, antiabolitionist convictions that persisted in that region until the American Civil War (1861-65.) Turner was born the property of a prosperous small-plantation owner in a remote area of Virginia. His mother was an African native who transmitted a passionate hatred of slavery to her son. He learned to read from one of his master's sons, and he eagerly absorbed intensive religious training. In the early 1820s he was sold to a neighboring farmer of small means. During the following decade his religious ardour tended to approach fanaticism, and he saw himself called upon by God to lead his people out of bondage. He began to exert a powerful influence on many of the nearby slaves, who called him "The Prophet." In 1831, shortly after he had been sold again, this time to a craftsman named Joseph Travis, a sign in the form of an eclipse of the sun caused Turner to believe that the hour to strike was near. His plan was to capture the armoury at the county seat, Jerusalem, and, having gathered many recruits, to press on to the Dismal Swamp, 30 miles to the east, where capture would be difficult. On the night of August 21, together with 7 fellow slaves in whim he had put his trust, he launched a campaign of total annihilation, murdering Tavis, his family in their sleep and then setting forth on a bloody march toward Jerusalem. In 2 days and nights about 60 white people were ruthlessly slain. Doomed from the start, Turner's insurrection was handicapped by lack of discipline among his followers and by the fact that only 75 blacks rallied to his cause. Armed resistance from the local whites and the arrival of the state militia, a total force of 3,000 men, provided the final crushing blow. Only a few miles from the county seat the insurgents were dispersed and either killed or captured, and many innocent slaves were massacred in the hysteria that followed. Turner eluded his pursuers for 6 weeks, but was finally catured, tried, and hanged. Nat Turner's rebellion put an end to the white Southern myth that slaves were either contented with their lot or too servile to mount an armed revolt. In Southampton county black people came to measure time from "Nat's Fray," or "Old Nat's War." For many years in black churches throughout the country, the name Jerusalem referred not only to the Bible, but also to the place where the rebel slave had met his death.

What were the effects of Nat Turner's rebellion on the Northern Beds?

Turner's rebellion demonstrated to the North the level of anger held by the enslaved, as well as the lengths freedom seekers were prepared to go for liberty. Southerners, meanwhile, saw their own vulnerability in the most shocking way possible. Southerners, then, asserted more control over the enslaved by further restricting African American gatherings and travel. A feeling of paranoia and fear descended over Southern slaveholders as never before.
