October 16, 1859: John Brown Attacks the Armory at Harpers Ferry
On this day in 1859, abolitionist John Brown set out for the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia in an attempt to capture guns and incite a slave revolution.
Things didn’t go according to plan. The local militia pinned Brown and his men down. In the end, ten of Brown’s men were killed (including two blacks and both of his sons), seven were captured (two of these later), and five had escaped.
Brown and his surviving men were quickly tried, sentenced, then executed. John Brown’s statements during his trial reached the nation, inspiring many with his righteous indignation toward slavery. The raid ultimately hastened the advent of the Civil War.
