'Nat Turner, revolutionary freedom-fighter, began his famous slave revolt in Southampton County, VA, on this date August 21, 1831. The uprising shocked white Southerners, who responded with bloody and ruthless retaliation against enslaved African Americans. This book and the events it recounted ignited a debate on slavery in the South and led to further restrictions being imposed on Southern blacks. Unsupervised gatherings were banned in an attempt to prevent future such uprisings. The book itself was banned in some parts of the South.'
