FC: The Battle of Harpers Ferry | Haley Wilson
1: The Civil War | The Civil war began in 1861 at Fort Sumter. IT was the bloodiest war the country has ever seen. It put brother against brother, neighbor against neighbor, mother against child, and families against families.
2: The Battle of Harpers Ferry was fought September 12–15, 1862, as part of the Maryland Campaign of the American Civil War. As General Robert E. Lee's Confederate army invaded Maryland, a portion of his army under Major General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson surrounded, bombarded, and captured the Union garrison at Harpers Ferry, Virginia a major victory at relatively minor cost.
3: Stonewall Jackson and The Confederate Army won the battle of Harper's Ferry. The battle took place in Virginia, which is now West Virginia. Stonewall Jackson was Lee’s most talented lieutenant, but he never had the stage to himself in which to demonstrate his skills in an independent command.
4: On October 16, 1859, John Brown made an attack in Harpers Ferry. He did not believe in slavery and said that God told him to go attack and kill slave owners in Harpers Ferry. His group included 16 white men, 3 free blacks, 1 freed slave, 1 fugitive slave, and his son. John Brown originally asked Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass to join him when he attacked the armory, but illness prevented Tubman from joining him, and Douglass believed that his plan would fail and did not join.
5: John Brown and his men were probably not responsible for more than ten or eleven deaths. They didn't just kill them, instead, they chopped everybody up. John Brown was tried and convicted of insurrection, treason and murder. He was executed on 2nd December, 1859. | along with all the others who helped him in the raid of Harpers Ferry.
