Below are the sword and axe used by Nat Turner and William, one of his followers. It is believed that William was the most violent af all of the participants in the insurrection. I took this picture this past Saturday in Courtland, VA at the end of the Nat Turner Trail Tour. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who has any interest in or thinks they already know what happened those three days in August 1831. And forget, for a few hours, everything they have heard or seen regarding Nat Turner. You will hear nothing but unbiased facts, straight from the actual records in the Southampton County Courthouse, in Courtland (Jerusalem), VA. Please don't post any opinions regarding whether Nat Turner was right or wrong, hero or villain. I understand this is a touchy subject here, as well as anywhere else.
