John Brown Rebellion
John Brown's goal was to lead a slave rebellion in the South. He led a band of 18, who attacked Harper's Ferry, Virginia. On the 16th of October, he seized the Federal armory there, and held local citizens hostage. After a two day fight, US Marines, led by captain Robert E Lee, captured Brown. He was hung on December 2, 1859.
