Summary
Martyr, madman, murderer, hero: John Brown remains one of history's most controversial and misunderstood figures. In the 1850s, he and his ragtag guerrilla group embarked on a righteous crusade against slavery that was based on religious faith -- yet carried out with shocking violence. His execution at Harpers Ferry sparked a chain of events that led to the Civil War. Frye talks about Raid - no one ate the food, feared it was poisoned, White Flag - sometimes means nothing in the 1850s, Raid - John Brown men kill Beckham, mob rule, mob kill Thompson, Raid - Layman surrenders but killed, used as target practice, Property - South thought John Brown thief, not Moses freeing people, Raid - Oliver Brown had been shot, Raid - Oliver dying, John Brown lectured be a man", trapped, Raid - sons dying, John Brown not sympathetic, god knows best, Jeb Stuart - opens engine house, recognizes John Brown from Kansas, Lt. Green - appears in middle of room, Lt. Green - John Brown survives his sword, had God stopped it?, Lt. Green - failure to kill John Brown was turning point for John Brown, Martyr - John Brown willingly die doing God's work, live on as symbol, Martyr - had John Brown been killed in raid, would've been forgotten, Martyr - achieved success in last weeks, thru voice"
