How would a poor white react to the Nat Turner rebellion???

  • American History -

    While one might think that poor whites, unable to afford slaves, would be in favor of abolitionsist movements, this is untrue. Owning a slave was the "Great American Dream" at the time and poor whites maintained the hope that they might one day own slaves. Does this answer your question?

  • American History -

    why do the poor whites still want to own slaves if the slaves rebelled and killed their slaveholders?

  • American History -

    They viewed slaves as property and the slaves' uprising as a threat to their rights. The slave rebellions only strengthened anti-abolitionist laws and caused slaves to be more easily mistreated.
