Abolitionist leader John Brown (d. December 2, 1859) was born May 9, 1800 in Torrington, Connecticut. On May 24, 1856, he led The Pottawatomie Massacre, when John Brown and his men killed five slavery supporters at Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas, hacking some into pieces with much of it done in front of their families. On October 16, 1859, he led John Brown's Raid On Harpers Ferry when he seized the Federal Arsenal at Harpers Ferry with about 20 followers. Inside the arsenal, Brown and his followers held 60 hostages and managed to hold out against the local militia, but three days later, U.S. Marines under the command of Col. Robert E. Lee stormed the arsenal after Brown refused to negotiate (with future confederate general J.E.B. Stuart) and was forcibly taken into custody after sustaining severe combat wounds. Ten of Brown's men, including two of his sons, were killed. Brown was convicted by the Commonwealth of Virginia of treason, murder, and inciting slaves to rebellion, and hanged on December 2, 1859, the first person executed for treason in the history of the United States. The Harpers Ferry Raid and Brown's trial (Virginia v. John Brown), both covered extensively in national newspapers, escalated tensions that led, a year later, to the South's long-threatened secession and the American Civil War. Southerners feared that others would soon follow in Brown's footsteps, encouraging and arming slave rebellions. He was a hero and icon in the North. Union soldiers marched to the new song "John Brown's Body", that portrayed him as a heroic martyr. Newly-freed African Americans sang the same song, and they often lowered their voices when speaking of Brown, as if he were a saint. Brown has been variously described as a heroic martyr and visionary, and as a madman and terrorist.
