'John Brown' Summary
John Brown was an abolitionist, who believed in the immediate end of slavery in the United States. He led a raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia) in 1859, with the goal of starting a slave rebellion. The raid failed and Brown and his followers were arrested.
