In 1859, John Brown (1800-1859) started a liberation movement among enslaved African Americans in Harpers Ferry, Virginia. He was arrested and tried for treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia for the murder of five men and inciting a slave insurrection. He was found guilty on all counts and was hanged.
