Archaeology After Dark: Nat Turner and the 46 Petitioners
Alexandria had one of the largest free Black populations in the country during the first half of the nineteenth century, but their neighbors, customers, and family members included enslaved and white individuals. After the Nat Turner uprising in 1831, 46 free Black residents of Alexandria published a petition in the local newspaper asserting their loyalty to the “authorities of the town.” Dr. Garrett Fesler, will share his ongoing research into the residents and signers of the petition, and how this adds to a better understanding of free Black Alexandria during that time.

Alexandria After Dark is a free event sponsored by the Friends of Alexandria Archaeology that brings together professional archaeologists and historians for informal lectures on topics relating to the rich archaeological heritage of Alexandria and the surrounding area.
