THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY, Aug. 1861  Inside has: "NAT TURNER'S REBELLION" which provides incredible detail of the only successful slave revolt in the United States. The Atlantic Monthly would later describe this incredible/historic article by the author as follows:
"In 1861, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, an abolitionist, minister, and frequent Atlantic contributor (and sometime assistant editor), drew on newspaper reports, Turner’s published confession, and accounts by witnesses to chronicle Turner’s insurrection. The following year, Higginson would become colonel of the Union’s first black regiment, the First South Carolina Volunteers."
His work, built upon original newspapers as one of his primary sources, became the source for many who would later put pen to paper to chronicle this historic event.
Complete in 128 pages, disbound, a bit of damp staining in the upper margin, but in overall good condition.
