Personal Fact of John Brown

John Brown was a noted American radical abolitionist who detested slavery and believed that the only way to get rid of it was armed insurgency. This is contrary to the belief of the Northerners who were proponents of peaceful resistance. Five pro-slavery men were killed by John Brown and his supporters during the Kansas conflict. The incident was referred to as the Pottawatomie massacre. John Brown led anti-slavery forces during the Battle of Black jack and Battle of Osawatomie.

These are two such incidents in the series of altercations between anti-slavery forces and pro-slavery men which were referred as Bleeding Kansas and considered a conducive cause that led to the American Civil War. He led an unsuccessful raid at the Harpers Ferry to seize weapons from the federal armoury of the United States which resulted in capture of the multi-racial group.

He was tried for treachery against the Commonwealth of Virginia, convicted and sentenced to death by hanging. His effort to initiate a liberation movement against slavery stirred the country. He soon became a martyr in the eyes of those who sought to eliminate slavery from America. The Southerners viewed his rebellion as representation of wishes of the Republican Party to end slavery and feared such rebellion put their lives in danger.
