⚒Nat Turner’s Rebellion⚒
When they revolted, they first went to Travis’s house to get guns and ammo. They went upstairs and killed Travis, his wife, and his kids. They moved from house to house stealing food, horses, and ammo/guns. They only went to slave owners’ houses. Some slave owners escaped Turner’s men and warned other slave owners about his rebellion. When they reached the bridge of Jerusalem, the slave owners were waiting for them. Nat’s men retreated and the slave owners chased and captured many of them. Nat himself hid with about 5 other slaves behind a couple of barrels. He sent them to get other slaves to continue the rebellion but they did not come back because they were probably captured. Turner then went back to Travis’s house, knowing that the slave owners knew his hiding place. Once there, he dug a hole under a pile of fence rails. He hid there for at least 6 weeks. He started to get hungry after running out of food supplies and went to get more food. Turner had only the chance to take one step before a slave owner captured him. He was brought to jail and put in there for weeks until they knew what to do with him. Soon after the judge found Turner guilty of leading the slave rebellion. His sentence was to be hanged and skinned. He died on November 11 1831 in Southampton County Virginia.
