Description
John Brown is a lightning rod of history. Yet he is poorly understood and most commonly described in stereotypes - as a madman, martyr, or enigma. Not until Patriotic Treason has a biography or history brought him so fully to life, in scintillating prose and moving detail, making his life and legacy-and the staggering sacrifices he made for his ideals-fascinatingly relevant to today's issues of social justice and to defining the line between activism and terrorism.

display_description John Brown is a lightning rod of history. Yet he is poorly understood and most commonly described in stereotypes as a madman, martyr, or enigma. But this work shows the sacrifices he made for his ideals, relevant today defining the line between activism and terrorism. He was committed to absolute racial equality. His friendships were African Americans in defiance of the culture around him, his family (twenty children) he turned into a dedicated miltia and in his ideals, inspired by the Declaration of Independence and The Golden Rule, he collaborated with black leaders such as Frederick Douglass, Martin Delaney, and Harriet Tubman to overthrow slavery.
