Mixing idealism with violence, abolitionist John Brown cut a wide swath across the United States before winding up in Virginia, where he led an attack on the US armory and arsenal at Harpers Ferry. But he was quickly captured and, after a short but stormy trial, hanged on December 2, 1859. This book provides an account of the trial.
