One-Day Seminar: John Brown’s Raid on Harpers Ferry hosted by Teaching American History

April 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:45 pm

John Brown’s 1859 raid on the federal arsenal in Harpers Ferry, Virginia was a pivotal moment in America’s road to Civil War. Opinions of Brown’s tactics were mostly, but not exclusively, divided along sectional lines. Many Northerners saw him as a courageous hero of abolition while Southerners saw him as a terrorist.

All attendees of this free Seminar will be provided with a certificate for continuing education and a digital copy of the agenda and document (found here).
