Placed online by the Library of Virginia, this site is a companion to the concluded physical exhibition of the same name. The online exhibition features transcripts and high-quality digital images of over 60 documents concerning acts of resistance to slavery in Virginia between the American Revolution and the Civil War. These are offered in four sections, the first of which discusses some of the lesser known early acts of resistance. The remaining sections cover Gabriel's Conspiracy, Nat Turner's Rebellion, and John Brown's Raid, respectively. Each section includes a short summary and a link to the primary documents. Overall, a compact but solid resource for teachers, students, or anyone interested in some of the most famous acts of resistance to slavery.
