Historian Stephen B. Oates notes that Nat Turner had ordered his followers to "kill all the white people", including women and children. The rebels killed approximately 60 white men, women and children; most were hacked to death with axes, stabbed, or bludgeoned. The largest number of casualties were children. In one instance, Turner and his insurgents stopped at the house of Levi Waller where they killed him, his wife, and children. Ten of the children were decapitated and their headless bodies piled in the front yard.[9]

Nat Turner's Rebellion resulted in a fierce white response motivated by fear and revenge. Eager to show that actions such as Turner's would not be tolerated, planters and white militias throughout the South executed vigilante justice, killing slaves and other persons of African descent, many of whom had no connection with the rebellion.[13]
