Description

In this episode, Lou revisits the Harper's Ferry raid of October 16, 1859, presents some preliminary thoughts on the contemporary perspective and then addresses a number of key points, along with a "January 6th" epilogue.  The key points addressed in this extended episode are:

1. What basically characterized John Brown’s earlier Virginia plan and how it was changed in the 1850s, and why it was changed?

2. Why did John Brown choose to capture the federal armory and what did he intend when he did so?

3. To what degree did John Brown’s movement in Harper’s Ferry attract local enslaved people?

4. Was the raid on Harper’s Ferry an ill-fated venture that had no real chance of success?

5. In what ways has our understanding of the HF raid been misshapen, and how has it  come down to us?

John Brown's truth is ours too.  He did his part. Let's do our part too and save our nation from rightwing rebellion, which is the spirit of the slaveholders.
