3. The rebellion of Nat Turner had all the following effects EXCEPT:

A. Fifty or sixty white people were killed.
B. The Southern states passed harsh new laws limiting the rights of slaves.
C. Southerners blamed William Lloyd Garrison and The Liberator for the uprising.
D. Nat Turner and several of his followers were hanged as criminals.
E. The rebellion inspired other successful uprisings throughout the South.

Correct Answer: E

Explanation:

Turner's rebellion was put down harshly. His army was too small to fight effectively against the United States. Because his rebellion resulted in harsher laws against slaves' rights, it would have been difficult for another rebellion to take place.
