John Brown

John Brown

Part man, part legend, all abolitionist, John Brown is a real-life historical figure on a god-driven crusade to free the land of slavery by any means necessary. Blinded by his own fanaticism and sanctimonious, yet irreverent, vision, Brown and his motley family of soldiers lead a raid on the US Armory at Harpers Ferry, a tragic prelude to the Civil War which ultimately put him on the right side of history.
