Nat Turner led the most famous slave rebellion in American history, yet how much do you actually know about him? How many of Nat Turner's 6 initial soldiers can you name?

After listening to the Nat Turner podcast you'll be able to answer all of these questions and much more. Follow Josh Harraway on a journey back in time as he uses sound effects and a full cast of actors to recreate the fateful events of the Southampton Insurrection of 1831.
