Nat Turner's slave rebellion

Nat Turner's Rebellion (also known as the Southampton Insurrection) was a slave rebellion that took place in Southampton County, Virginia during August 1831. Slaves in the rebellion killed approximately 60 white people, the highest number of fatalities caused by slave uprisings in the South. The rebellion was put down a few days later, but leader Nat Turner remained in hiding for several months afterward.

In the aftermath, there was widespread fear and retaliation against slaves. Many innocent enslaved people were punished. At least 100 blacks, and probably many more, were killed. New laws were passed across the South prohibiting education of slaves and free blacks, restricting rights of assembly and others for free blacks, and requiring white ministers to be present at black worship services.
