"If a tax on tea justified revolution, did not the souls of men and women?"

- William Lloyd Garrison


"Slavery is the great and foul stain upon the North American Union; and it is a contemplation worthy of the most exalted soul, whether its total abolition is or is not practicable. If practicable, by what means it may be effected, and if a choice of means be within the scope of the object, what means would accomplish it, at the smallest cost of human sufferance. This object is vast in its compass, awful in its prospects, sublime and beautiful in its issue. A life devoted to it would be nobly spent or sacrificed."

- John Quincy Adams

Recognizing him is one thing. Honoring him is another. I'm on the fence with this one.

" ... there are too many memorials to Confederate generals and soldiers to count. Surely if the rebel terrorists who killed to attempt to preserve the evilest of America's injustices are to be remembered, Brown should be honored as a hero and a patriot."
Appears to be another individual who believes a simplistic (and innacurate) reasoning for the United States Civil War.
I suppose the fact that he (Brown) was a nut case should be overlooked as well.
I wonder if that poster also believes McVeigh should be honored? After all, he too was attempting to overthrow tyranny (as he saw it).

Just saw this program last Friday and it was excellent. Great interaction, great interpretation. Fantastic job!

Brown was a hero. Certainly a cause such as ending slavery is as worthy as any and more so than most as a reason to tale up arms.

In Virginia and elsewhere in the Southern United States, there are too many memorials to Confederate generals and soldiers to count. Surely if the rebel terrorists who killed to attempt to preserve the evilest of America's injustices are to be remembered, Brown should be honored as a hero and a patriot.

As a murderous killer. No matter the cause, seeking vicious murders to obtain victory is evil by nature and he deserved to be killed.
