The tribunal : responses to John Brown and the Harpers Ferry Raid

Stauffer, John, 1965- (Added Author). Trodd, Zoe. (Added Author).

Summary: "When John Brown led twenty-one men in an attack on the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry on October 16, 1859, he envisioned a biblical uprising of millions of armed bondsmen, thus ridding the nation of the scourge of slavery. The insurrection did not happen, and Brown and the other surviving raiders were quickly captured and executed. This landmark anthology, which collects contemporary speeches, letters, newspaper articles, journals, poems, and songs, demonstrates that Brown's actions nonetheless altered the course of American history." -- Book jacket.
