OriginsEdit

John Brown was a radical abolitionist who believed in using force and violence to stop slavery. During the events of Bleeding Kansas, he argued that peaceful resistance and compromise to slavery was ineffective and that the institution needed to be violently put down if needed. He portrayed this belief by murdering five slavery supporters in Pottawatomie, Kansas.

He then moved on to bigger goals by planning to raid the federal arsenal in Harper’s Ferry, Virginia, free nearby slaves and arm them against slave owners. His plan quickly failed, with most of his supporters captured or killed; Brown himself was captured by to-be Confederate general Robert E. Lee. His trial brought full attention to the divisive issue of slavery and his subsequent hanging made him a martyr for abolitionism. He is still a controversial figure to historians today. Bleeding Kansas is the fight of the Northern and Southern states for slavery.
