Thomas Fortune and Introduction by Karen E. Quinones Miller Many people looking for information on Nat Turner come across the Pulitzer Prize winning book by William Styron, and believe they've come across an actual biography of the man, and a true account of what happened in August 1831. Nothing could be further from the truth. William Styron's book is a so-called historical novel,' and most of the information contained therein is pure fiction. Here, in the The Confessions of Nat Turner the leader of the Late Insurrection in Southampton, Va, you will find the full confession of Turner as he gave it to his appointed lawyer -- Thomas R. Gray -- while sitting in jail awaiting trial. In addition, there is a full account of the insurrection, and Turner's own account of his background. Originally published by Thomas R. Gray in 1831, this book is the one that true seekers of true history should read.
