John Brown was a radical abolitionist to say the least. Nice photograph of him prior to "his body lying moldering in the grave". Brown advocated and practiced armed insurrection as a means to abolish slavery in the United States. Executed in 1859, but his speeches at the trial captured national attention. Brown has been called "the most controversial of all 19th-century Americans" and "America's first domestic terrorist."
