John Brown was trying to raid Harper's arsenal. It backfired to start a slave rebellion, no slaves showed up and he fought the rebellion on his own. He ended up losing his 5 sons but lastly ending up in jail.
It's time this come to a end!
After John Brown was captured he spent 7 days in jail. He did not feel guilty or regret anything he did.
My sons are dead, I am in jail, but I don't regret anything i did.
During his fifth day in jail he was taken to trial to be punished for his crimes.
You will finally get the punishment you deserve.
You are found guilty, and sentenced to execution by hanging!
When he faced trial he was charged with treason and he was found guilty. He was then sentenced to execution by hanging.
John Brown spent his last days in his cell thinking about his sons and where he went wrong. But he had no regrets.
John Brown was convinced that slavery was evil and must be stopped at all cost, even if it meant his children and him would die.
I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood
