520    "On the evening of August 21, 1831, Nat Turner and six men
       launched their infamous rebellion against slaveholders. 
       The rebels swept through Southampton County, Virginia, 
       recruiting slaves to their ranks and killing nearly five 
       dozen whites--more than had ever been killed in any slave 
       revolt in American history. Although a hastily assembled 
       group of whites soon suppressed the violence, its 
       repercussions had far-reaching consequences. In The Land 
       Shall Be Deluged in Blood, Patrick H. Breen uses the 
       dramatic events in Southampton to explore the terrible 
       choices faced by members of the local black community as 
       they considered joining the rebels, a choice that would 
       likely cost them their lives, supporting their masters, or
       somehow avoiding taking sides. Combining fast-paced 
       narrative with rigorous analysis, Breen shows how, as 
       whites regained control, slaveholders created an account 
       of the revolt that saved their slaves from white 
       retribution, the most dangerous threat facing the 
       slaveholders' human property. By probing the stories 
       slaveholders told that allowed them to get non-
       slaveholders to protect slave property, The Land Shall Be 
       Deluged in Blood reveals something surprising about both 
       the fragility and power of slavery."--Publisher's
