        The Abolitionists: John Brown Puts His Accusers on Trial

        In October 1859, John Brown and a band of 21 men tried to raid the armory at Harpers Ferry. They thought their bold act would inspire slaves to rise up against their masters. Brown's raid failed, but his trial succeeded in bringing attention to the abolitionist cause. Video from, American Experience: "Abolitionists."
