Fast Facts You Need To Know

2013

Joseph Dreis wrote: “In connecting this vision to the motivation for his rebellion, Turner makes it clear that he sees himself as participating in the confrontation between God’s Kingdom and the anti-Kingdom that characterized his social-historical context.” He was convinced that God had given him the task of “slay[ing] my enemies with their own weapons.” Turner said: “I communicated the great work laid out for me to do, to four in whom I had the greatest confidence” – his fellow slaves Henry, Hark, Nelson, and Sam.

5 feet 6 or 8 inches [168–173 cm] high, weighs between 150 and 160 pounds [68–73 kg], rather “bright” [light-colored] complexion, but not a mulatto, broad shoulders, larger flat nose, large eyes, broad flat feet, rather knockneed, walks brisk and active, hair on the top of the head very thin, no beard, except on the upper lip and the top of the chin, a scar on one of his temples, also one on the back of his neck, a large knot on one of the bones of his right arm, near the wrist, produced by a blow.

2002

In 2002, a skull said to have been Turner’s was given to Richard G. Hatcher, the former mayor of Gary, Indiana, for the collection of a civil rights museum he planned to build there. In 2016, Hatcher returned the skull to two of Turner’s descendants. If DNA tests confirm that the skull is Turner’s, they will bury it in a family cemetery.

On his 2002 album God’s Son, in his song “Mastermind”, Nas raps: “Toast to my hero, Nat Turner”

1921

In the 21st century, writing after the September 11 attacks in the United States, William L. Andrews drew analogies between Turner and modern “religio-political terrorists”. He suggested that the “spiritual logic” explicated in Confessions of Nat Turner warrants study as “a harbinger of the spiritualizing violence of today’s jihads and crusades.”

1866

Another skull said to have been Turner’s was contributed to the College of Wooster in Ohio upon its incorporation in 1866. When the school’s only academic building burned down in 1901, the skull was saved by Dr. H. N. Mateer. Visitors recalled seeing a certificate, signed by a physician in Southampton County in 1866, that attested to the authenticity of the skull. The skull was eventually misplaced.

1843

In an 1843 speech at the National Negro Convention, Henry Highland Garnet, a former slave and active abolitionist, described Nat Turner as “patriotic”, saying that “future generations will remember him among the noble and brave.” In 1861 Thomas Wentworth Higginson, a northern writer, praised Turner in a seminal article published in Atlantic Monthly. He described Turner as a man “who knew no book but the Bible, and that by heart who devoted himself soul and body to the cause of his race.”

1832

The fear caused by Nat Turner’s insurrection and the concerns raised in the emancipation debates that followed resulted in politicians and writers responding by defining slavery as a “positive good”. Such authors included Thomas Roderick Dew, a College of William & Mary professor, who published a pamphlet in 1832 opposing emancipation on economic and other grounds. In the period leading up to the American Civil War, other Southern writers began to promote a paternalistic ideal of improved Christian treatment of slaves, in part to avoid such rebellions. Dew and others believed that they were civilizing black people (who by this stage were mostly American-born) through slavery.

1831

Nat Turner’s Rebellion (also known as the Southampton Insurrection) was a slave rebellion that took place in Southampton County, Virginia, in August 1831, led by Nat Turner. Rebel slaves killed from 55 to 65 people, at least 51 being white. The rebellion was put down within a few days, but Turner survived in hiding for more than two months afterwards. The rebellion was effectively suppressed at Belmont Plantation on the morning of August 23, 1831.

In 1830, Joseph Travis purchased Turner, and Turner later recalled that he was “a kind master” who had “placed the greatest confidence in” him. Turner eagerly anticipated God’s signal to “slay my enemies with their own weapons”. He witnessed a solar eclipse on February 12, 1831 and was convinced that it was the sign for which he was waiting, so he started preparations for an uprising against the white slaveholders of Southampton County by purchasing muskets. He “communicated the great work laid out to do, to four in whom I had the greatest confidence”, his fellow slaves Henry, Hark, Nelson, and Sam.

Beginning in February 1831, Turner claimed certain atmospheric conditions as a sign to begin preparations for a rebellion against slaveowners. On February 12, 1831, an annular solar eclipse was visible in Virginia. Turner envisioned this as a black man’s hand reaching over the sun.

Turner originally planned to begin the rebellion on July 4, Independence Day, 1831, but he had fallen ill and to use the delay for additional planning with his co-conspirators. An atmospheric disturbance on August 13 made the sun appear bluish-green, possibly the result of lingering atmospheric debris from an eruption of Mount St. Helens in present-day Washington state; he took it as the final signal and began the rebellion a week later, on August 21. He started with several trusted fellow slaves, and ultimately gathered more than 70 enslaved and free blacks, some of whom were on horseback. The rebels traveled from house to house, freeing slaves and killing all the white people whom they encountered.

He was tried on November 5, 1831 for “conspiring to rebel and making insurrection”; he was convicted and sentenced to death. He was asked if he regretted what he had done, and he responded, “Was Christ not crucified?” He was hanged on November 11 in Jerusalem, Virginia, and his corpse was drawn and quartered.

1828

By the spring of 1828, Turner was convinced that he “was ordained for some great purpose in the hands of the Almighty”. He “heard a loud noise in the heavens” while working in his owner’s fields on May 12, “and the Spirit instantly appeared to me and said the Serpent was loosened, and Christ had laid down the yoke he had borne for the sins of men, and that I should take it on and fight against the Serpent, for the time was fast approaching when the first should be last and the last should be first”.

1824

Turner was intelligent and learned how to read and write at a young age. He was identified as having “natural intelligence and quickness of apprehension, surpassed by few.” He grew up deeply religious and was often seen fasting, praying, or immersed in reading the stories of the Bible. He frequently had visions which he interpreted as messages from God, and these visions influenced his life. He ran away at age 21 from his owner Samuel Turner, but he returned a month later after becoming delirious from hunger and receiving a vision which told him to “return to the service of my earthly master”. He had his second vision in 1824 while working in the fields under his new owner Thomas Moore. In it, “the Saviour was about to lay down the yoke he had borne for the sins of men, and the great day of judgment was at hand”.

1800

Nat Turner (October 2, 1800 – November 11, 1831) was an enslaved African-American preacher who led the four-day rebellion of enslaved and free black people in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831. Born into slavery on October 2, 1800, in Southampton County, Virginia, an area with more blacks than whites, Turner was recorded as “Nat” by Benjamin Turner, the man who held his mother and him as slaves. When Benjamin Turner died in 1810, Nat was inherited as property by Benjamin’s son Samuel Turner. For most of his life, he was known as “Nat”, but after the 1831 rebellion, he was widely referred to as “Nat Turner”. Turner knew little about the background of his father, who was believed to have escaped from slavery when Turner was a young boy. Turner spent his entire life in Southampton County, a plantation area where slaves comprised the majority of the population.
