Could it have been that the slaves stirred Turner’s decision of murder? My curiosity is led by the incidence of this slave’s return to become of service to his master as directed by the ‘Spirit’. In his personal account, Turner talked about escaping to the woods for thirty days before being instructed to return and serve his master. Upon getting there, the slaves were not pleased at seeing him and his reason displeased them. According to Turner, they dissuaded his sense and told him off for his return. In the subsequent days, Turner saw blood visions, which he translated to be a sign for murder. Though he failed to mention any contribution by the slaves, could have their comments pushed him to thinking in the manner that he did?
