Nat Turner, also a black preacher, led the Nat turner rebellion uprising in 1831. it slaughtered about sixty virginians, mostly women and children. this was the most famous of all rebellions against the slavery system. before 1831, in 1830 there were more abolitionist( wanting to abolish, rid, of slavery) societies in the south, but after Nat Turners rebellion in 1831, more abolitionist societies moved into the north because of his uprising in virginia. this also helped with the slaves wanting to be apart of the abolitionist propaganda that was going around in the north.
