This is an account of the famous raid into Virginia by John Brown: hero, martyr, madman, and murderer. He planned to seize the national arsenal at Harper's Ferry and free the black slaves in the area. However troops were quick to overpower the ragtag guerrilla group along with Brown, and several others. Once captured, they were speedily brought to trial, convicted, and hanged. The whole country was stirred by this event. The South believed, as never before, in the wickedness of the North and some believe Brown's execution set off a chain of events that led to the Civil War. His readiness to die in the cause of freedom won the attention of many and gave a certain amount of dignity to abolitionism.
