Nat Turner was a slave that led a rebellion of slaves and free black people in Southampton County, Virginia on August 21, 1831, that resulted in the deaths of 55- 65 white people. 

In retaliation, enraged white militias and mobs killed more than 200 black people in the course of putting down the rebellion.
