They were all heroes . . .

Sparked by an indigo sun, Nat Turner stormed into history with a sword in one hand and a Bible in the other. Thirty years before the advent of the Civil War—in the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, commanding a small army of slaves, Nat Turner led a bloody fight for freedom that shined a national spotlight on slavery and left more than fifty wh

Since I enjoyed the first part of historical fiction of Nat Turner life, now I want to dab into part 2 of the series. I didn't learn about this man until I went to college and taken Africology and History courses, also after reading Richard Wright literature piqued my curiosity too.

The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part Two by Sharon Ewell Foster is a well-written historical fiction piece. While it dredges up the horrors and injustices of Slavery, it also details the positive relationships between the "haves" and the "have-nots".

I enjoyed this book as much as "Part 1," which is a lot. Besides being both entertaining and interesting from an historical perspective, the book shows how easily the conqueror can rewrite history to suit their purposes. Read both Part 1 and Part 2...they are both easy to read, and will make you think about the Civil War, civil rights, slavery, and the human race.
