In 1863, in the midst of the upheaval of the Civil War, Orville J. Victor published his "History of American Conspiracies," a work encompassing everything from Pontiac's rebellion to the treasons of Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr. Nat Turner's rebellion earns an entire chapter, titled "The Southampton slave insurrection." In his introduction, the author notes that in attaining its exalted position among nations,, the United States has not escaped local and national disorder. The history of Colonial times was rife with religious and political excitement, frequently associated with violence and revolution. He embraces these stories of revolt and commotion, which directly or indirectly affected the order of society, the destiny of the States, or the political institutions of the Republic.
