'William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston', Artist: Unknown

'William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston', c1860, (1938). In February, 1858, Emerson wrote in his Journal, It is impossible to be a gentleman and not be an Abolitionist. But conservative Northern opinion frowned severely on the activities of Abolitionist agitators. When William Lloyd Garrison tried to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston, he and his cohorts were thrown out bodily by the citizens, who subsequently held a meeting whch resolved that Bown's was a nefarious enterprise, and humbly asked their Virginia brothers to help preserve a Union so important to the interest of commerce, manufactures, and agriculture. From Adventures of America 1857-1900, by John A. Kouwenhoven [Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York and London, 1938]

Capture of John Brown in the engine house, c1880. Artist: Unknown

Capture of John Brown in the engine house, Harpers Ferry, Virginia, USA, 1859 (c1880). Brown (1800-1859) believed that armed insurrection was the only way to end slavery in the United States. He led the Free-staters in the Bleeding Kansas conflict that broke out in 1855 and was involved in the killing of five pro-slavery southerners at Pottawatomie in 1856. In 1859 he led a raid on the federal armoury at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, that was intended to obtain weapons begin an uprising against slavery in the southern states. Brown was captured after the raid, tried and hanged for treason. A print from Cassell's History of the United States, by Edmund Ollier, Volume III, Cassell Petter and Galpin, London, c1880.
