The Land Shall Be Deluged in Blood

A New History of the Nat Turner Revolt

Patrick H. Breen

  • Offers a revisionist and comprehensive narrative of the most famous slave revolt in American history
  • Formulates a new, fluid understanding of slave identity, in which slaves both resisted and accepted their owners' authority
  • Challenges the argument that Thomas Gray manipulated the Confessions of Nat Turner and the figure of blacks killed without trials after the revolt
