Abstract Martyr for freedom, traitor to his country, murderer; all were titles given to a man from Connecticut whose passion for freedom and human dignity in the mid-1800s would ignite Americans into a sectional explosion that would ultimately destroy slavery. His name was John Brown. Though his moral commitment to freedom was truly righteous, it spread into a violent action that remains mired in controversy. This is the story of one man's solution for the hated institution of slavery.
