The Raid on Harper's Ferry
By andrewilo, Updated
John Brown and his raid on Harper's Ferry.
We must show those Southerners who's boss. We will leave shortly for Harper's Ferry, where we will round up hostages and spark a slave rebellion.
When there, I plan to seize an arsenal. This will be the first stage in holding an independent stronghold of freed slaves.
Just what I was looking for. Now, gather any slaves willing to fight for their freedom!
This is not looking good at all.
Sir, no slaves wanted to revolt. Also, we're surrounded by Robert E. Lee's men.
John Brown, I do hereby declare of your arrest. You will be tried by the state of Virginia for treason and murder.
