Careful study of the Nat Turner slave rebellion of 1831 reveals much about master, slaves, and the relationship between them in the antebellum South. The central document in this volume — Nat Turner's confession follwing the rebellion in Virginia — is supported by newspaper articles, trial transcripts, and excerpts from the diary of Virginia governor John Floyd.

"Professor Greenberg has done a polished and fascinating treatment of the topic.... Most praise worthy is the way in which he deals with issues of evidence and interpretation in a very sophisticated yet fundamental way to make the whole question of documents and their uses a provocative adventure for the student/reader."
