Contemporary illustration of the Nat Turner Rebellion

Detailed histories of five important episodes of slave revolt, excerpted from a longer book called Travellers and Outlaws by abolitionist Thomas Wentworth Higginson, first published in 1889. Unfortunately it contains language and a perspective tainted by the widespread prejudice at the time, however we reproduce it in full for historical information only.
