Kenneth S. Greenberg has compiled a collection of essays by twelve scholars covering all aspects of the 1831 Nat Turner slave rebellion. Greenberg and others emphasize how little we know about this 31 year old slave who claimed to be chosen by God to rid the young nation of slavery. In fact, so little is known that even his real name is a mystery. These essays place the importance of this revolt into historical context and examine why it still captures our imagination.
