John Brown was a polarizing figure in American history, and his raid of Harpers Ferry in support of slavery’s abolition – and subsequent capture and execution- was a pivotal moment as the country moved toward disunion. Join us for a virtual tour of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park as we reflect on differing contemporary perspectives of Brown’s raid with retired National Park Service historian Dennis Frye. Following the tour, we will conduct a live Q&A discussion.
This event will premiere on our Facebook page with a live Q&A session at the time indicated. Once the premiere is complete, the video will remain on our Facebook page for future viewing.
