American History Tellers

In the 1850s, the United States was lurching toward a crisis over slavery -- and abolitionist John Brown stepped into the fray. Brown believed it was his God-given destiny to destroy slavery. His crusade took him from abolitionist meetings in the Northeast, to the Underground Railroad in Ohio, to the bloody plains of Kansas.In 1854, a fierce conflict erupted over whether the territory of Kansas would join the Union as a free state or slave state. As tensions escalated, Brown would rush to the center of the gathering storm and hatch a violent plan for striking back against proslavery forces.Listen to new episodes 1 week early and to all episodes ad free with Wondery+.

'The Zealot And The Emancipator' Explores The Different Paths Of Abraham Lincoln And John Brown

St. Louis on the Air

One of our favorite recent conversation was with H.W. Brands. His recent book, "The Zealot and the Emancipator: John Brown, Abraham Lincoln and the Struggle for American Freedom," explores the run-up to slavery's abolition — and choice to confront its "great evil" via politics or violence — through the lives of two men: John Brown and Abraham Lincoln.

The Pen or the Sword? How Lincoln and John Brown Disagreed on Achieving Emancipation

History Unplugged Podcast

John Brown was a charismatic and deeply religious man who heard the God of the Old Testament speaking to him, telling him to destroy slavery by any means. When Congress opened Kansas territory to slavery in 1854, Brown raised a band of followers to wage war. His men tore pro-slavery settlers from their homes and hacked them to death with broadswords. Three years later, Brown and his men assaulted the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, hoping to arm slaves with weapons for a race war that would cleanse the nation of slavery. He wasn't the only one using strong methods to free slaves, but many questioned his violent methods.Today's Guest, H.W. Brand, is author of the book "The Zealot and the Emancipator," an account of how two American giants shaped the war for freedom.Brown’s violence pointed ambitious Illinois lawyer and former officeholder Abraham Lincoln toward a different solution to slavery: politics. Lincoln spoke cautiously and dreamed big, plotting his path back to Washington and perhaps to the White House. Yet his caution could not protect him from the vortex of violence Brown had set in motion. After Brown’s arrest, his righteous dignity on the way to the gallows led many in the North to see him as a martyr to liberty. Southerners responded with anger and horror to a terrorist being made into a saint. Lincoln shrewdly threaded the needle between the opposing voices of the fractured nation and won election as president. But the time for moderation had passed, and Lincoln’s fervent belief that democracy could resolve its moral crises peacefully faced its ultimate test.

John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry and a Kentucky Gun Maker

Uncommon History of the South Podcast

John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry and a Kentucky Gun Maker John Brown was an American abolitionist. Brown, who said that speeches, sermons, and petitions were accomplishing nothing, that "moral suasion is hopeless", saw violence as unfortunately necessary if slavery in the United States were to be eliminated. Benjamin Mills was a well known gun maker that spent most of his career building rifles in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.  After the Civil War he moved his business from Harrodsburg to Lexington, Kentucky and continued to build rifles, shotguns, and pistols. The Good Lord Bird Ethan Hawke stars as abolitionist John Brown in a humorous, dramatic and historical tapestry of Antebellum America.
