Photograph - Photograph
Nathaniel "Nat" Turner (1800-1831) was an American slave who led a rebellion in Virginia on August 21, 1831. The rebellion resulted in 56 deaths among their victims, the largest number of white fatalities to occur in one uprising in the antebellum southern United States. Turner's killing of whites during the uprising makes his legacy controversial. For his actions, Turner was convicted, sentenced to death, and executed.
