Much has been written about John Brown and his ill-fated raid on Harpers Ferry, but as Brown himself recognized, his power would be greater in death than in life. This is the first book length examination of Brown's legacy: what different segment of American society, with their differing aspirations, fears, and purposes, made of Brown's attempt to foment a slave rebellion and his subsequent trial and execution.
