About the Event

By 1859 John Brown was convinced that extreme measures must be taken to abolish slavery. This lecture follows Brown’s failed attempt to start a slave insurrection at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, his trial, and public execution. We will then follow Brown’s body through the Adirondacks to his final resting place in North Elba.
