John Brown


This portrait of John Brown was made June 18, 1859, when he was headed to Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Brown was an abolitionist who used violence to end slavery. He was involved in the Pottawatomie Massacre and Battle of Black Jack, and the Battle of Osawatomie in Kansas in 1856. After he and his followers attacked the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, he was captured and executed for his actions. Brown was named among the top 25 notable Kansans in 2011. From the collections of the Kansas Historical Society, the print was produced for the Kansas Historical Foundation.
