I B'lieve I'll go wid de ol man

That's what Shields Green said when he decided to go to Harper's Ferry. Today's website is about my first chapter's focus, Old John Brown. Mouldering in the grave, but his truth goes marching on.

If you want to know what kinds of ideas Brown and his friends had and don't have much time, you could do worse than redaing Frederick Douglas's The Heroic Slave.
