This textbook was absolutely amazing. You really can feel the pain that Turner felt, as well as the righteousness in killing these people. I am a person that does not believe in violence, but this textbook made me understand how a man or woman could be driven to such dire cir[censored]tances. This textbook should as graphic as it is should also be given to all High School students. It really shows that when backed into a corner, that people can do things that are truly unthinkable. Maybe bullying could be affected in positive way, by this work. Highly recommended

The Fires of Jubilee: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


A fictionalized account of the slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in 1831 in Southampton County, Virginia.

The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831, and the savage reprisals that followed, shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the bloodbath of the Civil War.
