A section of a Mulberry is still in Southampton water & was used to load the car ferrys

Not sure what this is, but I love the little bit of perspective and how it feels like a scifi movie poster. Also has a stained glass look, in my opinion. Scifi stained glass: nice. I also appreciate how the text is fit right into the design rather than just slapped on top of it.

August 21, 1831

August 21, 1831: Nat Turner begins a slave revolt in Southampton County, Virginia. The two-day insurrection left at least 55 white people dead. Turner hid for several months, but was eventually captured and executed, along with over 50 of his followers; another 200 black people were subsequently murdered by white mobs in the state.
