Humanity was being thrown off balance (ex: slaves didn't have adequate food or clothing).

He led a group of followers on a brief, violent rampage in Southhampton County, Virginia. 55 whites died. Nat was hanged for rebelling and the white people were now frightened. b.) The Underground Railroad was a group of rebels that were led by Harriet Tubman. She did not establish the Underground Railroad but she was the most successful conductor.
