This chapter examines the immediate reaction of upper South whites to the publication of David Walker's Appeal and Nat Turner's slave revolt in Virginia. The deep fear and persistent anxiety that the Turner insurrection aroused among upper South whites, and white Virginians especially, is discussed as background to a growing popular interest in accelerating the demographic reconfiguration of slavery in the region.

Keywords:   slavery, Nat Turner, Turner insurrection, David Walker, upper South, whites, Virginia
