“He Saw the Evil Through No Mist Or Haze” Frederick Douglass on John Brown

John Brown was a revolutionary terrorist. There was nothing alien or exotic about him; he was a genuine growth of the American soil. The roots of his family tree on both sides reached back among the first English settlers of Connecticut. The generations of Browns were pious Protestant pioneers, tough and upstanding, and singularly consistent in their ideas, characters, and ways of life. John Brown was the third fighter for freedom of that name in his family and was himself the parent of a fourth. His grandfather died in service as a captain in the Revolutionary war. His father was an active abolitionist, a station-master and conductor on the underground railway.
Read and Study John Brown

Today, 150 years ago, a blow for freedom was struck that still echoes down to our time. We end John Brown Week with Frederick Douglass’ speech from Harper’s Ferry, 1881 accompanied by photos of all the Harper’s Ferry insurrectionists and martyrs. The cause of human freedom calls to us now as it did then. Their memory shall live forever.
