    Lee - soon to become commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Knowing the character of the leader of the insurgents, I did not expect it would be accepted. Jackson who earned the nickname "Stonewall" less than two years later were called into service as a security detail in the event Brown's supporters attempted a rescue. How do the documents differ?

    As day advanced, and the citizens of Harper's Ferry commenced their usual avocations, they were separately captured, to the number of forty, as well as I could learn, and confined in one room of the fire-engine house of the armory, which seems early to have been selected as a point of defense As Douglass and Brown's family testified, his strategy was essentially to deplete Virginia of its slaves, causing the institution to collapse in one county after another, until the movement spread into the South, wreaking havoc on the economic viability of the pro-slavery states. On the night of October 16,Brown and his band overran the arsenal. His sons were involved in the abolitionist movement in the territory, and they summoned their father, fearing attack from pro-slavery settlers. Only one man, a Border Ruffian, was killed. Brown made money raising cattle and surveying.

    In the summer ofshortly after the death of a newborn son, his wife Dianthe died, leaving him with the children John Jr. Mason led the three-hour questioning session of Brown. John Brown, December 2, When he put it into operation in the autumn of with only 18 men in tow, the results were catastrophic.

John Browns raid. book

US Marines storm the engine house From a contemporary illustration The fire of the insurgents up to this time had been harmless. A few days later, under the name Isaac Smith, he rented a farmhouse in nearby Maryland. The Marines used sledgehammers and a makeshift battering ram to break down the engine room door.

The Governor of Virginia was so concerned about an attempt to rescue Brown that he halted almost all transportation on the Winchester and Potomac Railroad from Maryland south through Harpers Ferry to Charles Town from the day before through the day after the execution see Winchester and Potomac Railroad John Brown's raid.

He would father twenty children. Brown's forces held out for two days; they were eventually defeated by military forces led by Robert E. The link is tricky, to be sure. It was the greatest symbol yet of the northern antislavery movement. In speeches, he pointed to the martyrs Elijah Lovejoy and Charles Turner Torrey as whites "ready to help blacks challenge slave-catchers.

Express train bound east, under my charge, was stopped this morning at Harper's Ferry by armed abolitionists. In the meantime, the local militia surrounded the town preventing the raiders' escape. During this period, Brown operated an interstate business involving cattle and leather production along with a kinsman, Seth Thompson, from eastern Ohio.

Did you know? How do the documents differ? Ironically, Shepherd was a free black man. As early as he was formulating a plan to incite an insurrection. However, Brown opted to let the train continue, and the conductor ultimately notified authorities in Washington about what was happening at Harpers Ferry.

Brown, outnumbered more than seven to one, arranged his 38 men behind natural defenses along the road. Brown supposedly told Silas that, aged 59, he was too old to live a life on the run from the federal authorities as a fugitive and that he was ready to die as a martyr.

With the passing of the Kansas-Nebraska Act ofthere was conflict over whether the territory would be a free or slave state. Dark Hundreds of excited militiamen and townspeople jam the streets of Harpers Ferry. Now, if it be deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children, and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments, I submit: so let it be done.
