    Henry David Thoreau lived from 1817 until 1862, mainly in the area of Concord, Massachusetts. The issue that would tear the country apart in the 1860s had already begun dividing the nation. Thoreau was only 14 when Nat Turner led the slave rebellion in Virginia and was later hanged. In his late 20s, Thoreau began speaking against slavery in public, echoing the voices of freedmen like Frederick Douglass and Lewis Hayden.

    I would say Thoreau led a slave rebellion because the paragraph states he was introduced to the slave rebellion at a very young age. It also says that in his late 20's he began speaking against slavery.

    I'm sorry I mean Thoreau did not support slavery would be the correct answer
