. . . I had a vision . . . I saw white spirits and black spirits
engaged in battle, and the sun was darkened – the thunder rolled in the Heavens, and blood flowed in streams – and I heard a voice saying, “. . . such you are called to see, and let it come rough or smooth, you must surely bear it.”

Nat Turner, enslaved man
