Storyboard Text

  • We have you surrounded. You must surrender!
  • Brown's raid was NOT successful. By the morning of October 19, soldiers captured Brown and any of his surviving men
  • On October 16, 1859, American abolitionist John Brown and 22 other men led a raid against the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, Virginia. The raid was not successful
  • On December 2 of the same year, Brown was found guilty and was sentenced to death by hanging. Before his death, Brown wrote a note stating “The crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood.” The outbreak of the Civil War happened 16 months later
  • He deserves this
  • Although Brown's raid was unsuccessful, it still intensified sectional tensions and raised the stakes for the 1860 presidential election. This ultimately led the Civil War
  • However, the South was scared and threatened by the idea that there may be another John Brown
  • The North generally didn't agree with his rash actions and violence, but many still mourned his death
