On August 21, 1831, the main action of this slave revolt took place in what is now called Courtland. Nat Turner, a legendary revolutionary, led the group which killed 60 whites before the militia brought it to a halt. Later, Turner was caught and hanged. All of the homes affected are under private ownership and not open to the public. Only the markers and the memories remain.
