Re: Relatives of NAT TURNER?
In Response To: Re: Relatives of NAT TURNER? ()
I am married to a direct descendant of Nat Turner. My wife was born and raised in Courtland, Va. Many of her relatives are still living is the region. Some have migrated to other cities along the eastern seaboard but many of them still reside in the Tide Water area. I Have been married to my wife for 28 years and I am still amazed over the fact that the subject of Nat Turner is regarded as an untouchable subject. I would appreciate it if you would contact me and give me your opinion as to why they deny their heritage and history. I suppose that it has something to do with the possibility of the whites that wanted to keep the event closed, so to put down any other attempts for further rebellion. It still is hard to beleive that this attitude has been implanted for so long. Thanks
