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.
