  • I am John Brown, I dislike the way the South thinks and acts.
  • Boys this is it, we planned this for a little bit of time, lets fight for us to be Heroes and to free African Americans.
  • Harpers Ferry Aresnal
  • Marines raid the Arsenal and capture John Brown!
  • Men grab guns and fight with us for your freedom!
  • If we fight our owners and whits will kill us.
  • Yes! Colonel Robert E. Lee
  • We don't even know how to use guns!
  • Background Info/Previous Rebellions: John Brown supported the North and disliked the South's ways of doing things. This Scene shows how Brown gathered his five sons to rebel against the Southerners that wanted slavery in the Kansas Territory.
  • My fight in Harpers Ferry was to free rebel against southern laws, and to free slaves.
  • John Brown you are imprisoned until we decide when you are hung.
  • On October 16, 1859 John Brown gathered his five sons and made a plan to raid Harpers Ferry Arsenal in Virginia. He wanted to raid the Arsenal to get guns for slaves so they can create a Slave Rebellion.
  • Kill John Brown for betraying our country!
  • You are an influence, you are a Hero!
  • John Brown's plan was to have the Slaves join in with him for the rebellion. The slaves didn't really trust whites, they can't escape because if their owners find them they are dead and slaves do not really know how to use guns. This was a fail for John Brown and now he had to survive with his five suns while fighting the U.S Marines.
  • John Brown's sons died and the Marines captured him. During and after his trials Brown was put into jail and charged for treason and murder. On December 2, 1859 he was sentenced to death.
  • John Brown walked out of prison calm and with a peaceful expression. Army Men and other people came to see John Brown die after he tried to free slaves. There was also a African American woman with her child standing by John Brown's way so John Brown kissed the child.
  • On December 2, 1859 John Brown was hung and died. Northerners and African American Slaves looked at him as a hero, and Southerners looked at him as a criminal.
