One comment on “John Brown’s Body…

  1. I can’t really support John Brown. His method for freeing slaves led to many people being killed who were only following their own consciences–both before his famous raid and during it. It is one thing to know slavery is wrong and to attempt to fix it. It is another to commit murder or to believe slave owners can be killed on sight.

    Even if one’s end is correct (the freeing of slaves), one can’t justify using improper means to meet it.
