"Saint or madman? Murderer or Liberator? Martyr or Devil? Terrorist or Freedom-fighter?"
Dennis Frye explores these questions 150 years after John Brown's Raid in the new issue of Civil War Traveler, published this week.
Frye is the chief historian at the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and the chairman of the quad-state John Brown Raid Sesquicentennial Committee.
Free copies of the Traveler will be available at major welcome centers and Civil War sites in the mid-Atlantic states by Memorial Day — and are being distributed there starting today.
If you made an advance order for a mailed copy via CivilWarTraveler.com/books, it will be sent via the USPS in the next day or two. If you would like to order a copy, the cost is $6 including postage. Here is the direct link for ordering.
