John Brown’s Raid on Harpers Ferry took place from October 16 through October 18, 1859.  Herman Melville would state that John Brown was the meteor of the Civil War.  Why did John Brown lead the ill-fated attack on Harpers Ferry?  What was he hoping to accomplish?  Was he successful?  Join us for four weeks as we talk about John Brown, his attack on Harpers Ferry and the impact of his actions on the coming of the American Civil War.
