John Brown Thundering Voice of Jehovah

John Brown Thundering Voice of Jehovah

Abolitionist John Brown has become one of the most storied but least examined figures in American history. This pictorial history deconstructs his life, family and travels, from his birth in 1800 to his 1859 death by hanging in Charles Town, Virginia. Extensive coverage is given to Brown's fateful attack of the U.S. arsenal at Harpers Ferry in 1859, and how that event moved a nation one step closer to Civil War. More importantly, the author reveals the life experiences that culminated with Browns attack of the arsenal. Hundreds of period photos are accompanied by contemporary color shots of the locations associated with Brown, stretching from New York to Kansas. The most complete pictorial history of John Brown ever is sure to be of interest to both Civil War and general American history buffs.
