Objects/Places

The plantation where Nat grew into manhood. Here he was taught to read by the Turner family, and later, as a carpentry apprentice, he became useful and valued for his work at the mill.

Dismal Swamp

This vast, wild swamp was to be the hideout for Nat's men after the insurrection.

Person's Millpond

The small body of water that Nat uses to baptize Ethelred Brantley, after having been refused the use of the church by Reverend Whitehead.
