Storyboard Text

  • Nat Turner was born on a plantation in Virginia, where his life began
  • Some slaves believed that Nat was a prophet because he was a smart man , so he ran away from the plantation and was free for about nine years.
  • Nat went on a new plantation where he stayed there for a year, then an eclipsed occured in the summer of 1831 and that is when the plan had begun.
  • Another similar type of eclipse occurred again with the sun so this was a sign to commence their viscous plan, but first Nat and some fellow slaves met in the woods to talk over dinner
  • Nat and his fellow slaves killed 55 people on horseback and that was their rebellion. Forty slaves killed these white people in the middle of the night.
  • Nat was later hung after a miltia caught him. This prompted the civil war to begin because the south could say slavery was good because slaves are bad and monsters. The North did not want slavery they disagreed on this issue.
