Insurrection of the Blacks [Nat Turner's Revolt]
Baltimore: Niles Weekly Register, 1831. Some of the earliest reporting on Nat Turner's revolt in Southampton, Virginia, which began on 21 Aug 1831. These are the first two issues of the Niles' Weekly Register (27 Aug 1831 and 3 Sep 1831) to recount the events. The 27 Aug paper, which is especially scarce, devotes 13.5 column inches and includes the initial report of the violent attacks published in the Norfolk Herald. The 3 Sep paper, which is less scarce though still uncommonly found, contains 18 column inches, corrects some errors from the previous week's report and provides additional details. The newspapers were once bound. Both are clean and supple with some light toning. The leaves of the 27 Aug edition have some edge wear at the upper right margins. Together these two newspapers provide an extraordinary contemporary record of the slaughter in which about 40 slaves hacked, stabbed, and clubbed to death 60 white people. Many of the victims were killed in their sleep and most of those killed were women and young children, eleven of whom were decapitated after being trapped in a school classroom.. First Edition. Newspaper. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
