Very interesting story that appears to mostly be based off of letters written between John Brown and his family, supporters, and financial backers.

Exceptional and compelling narrative of the abolitionist John Brown and the raid he led on the arsenal at Harpers Ferry in 1859. Horwitz explores the background and aftermath of the raid thoroughly, giving the reader a greater understanding of the events of those hours. Highly recommended.
