Tony Horowitz, author of Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid That Sparked the Civil War.

Gerry's Introduction -
This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio, John Brown was the sacrificial lamb. The man who freely gave his life in accordance with God's will, to free us all from the bondage of sin. John Brown was the long bearded religious fanatic who commanded a suicide attack on a building that symbolized the power of the United States; killed 19 of his followers and touched off a long and costly war. Who was John Brown? The 19th century version of Jesus Christ? Or Osama bin Laden? The debate goes on marching today. We will have the author of Confederates in the Attic, Tony Horowitz, who gives his take in Midnight Risings: John Brown and the Raid That Sparked the Civil War, with us today on Civil War Talk Radio.
