A classic work of history and literature and a passionate defense and exploration of John Brown—the man, father, religionist, and irrepressible crusader against the sacrilege of slavery. DuBois conveys the wrath and turbulence of John Brown, yet depicts his care and deliberation in the anti-slavery battle, from Kansas to his final assault. With keen perception, there is revealed both the unity and conflict of Brown's relation with Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, and other Abolitionists.
