Response to a Slave Rebellion - Nat Turner's Rebellion
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Nat Turner's Rebellion:
 
2     Nat Turner was an intelligent and very religious young man. He also became something of a mystery, someone who claimed to have visions. As an adult, he remained a mysterious figure. Many questions remain about Nat Turner to this day.
 
3     We do know that Nat Turner was the leader of a slave rebellion that took place in Virginia in 1831. He led a group of about 60 or 70 slaves. These rebels began at the Travis plantation where Turner was a slave. They killed the entire Travis family. Then, they moved on to other plantations. In the end, a total of about 60 plantation owners and family members had been killed.
 
4     Response to the Rebellion:
 
5     The first official response to Nat Turner's Rebellion was to call out the militia. About 3,000 troops were sent to capture Nat Turner and his followers. Many slaves were captured and tried in court for participating in the rebellion. A few of the captured slaves were later found innocent and set free, but many more were found guilty and executed.
