Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid that Sparked the Civil War by Tony Horwitz

23 Dec

Awesome

Great writer, great subject. When I taught the first half of American History, I always enjoyed having a debate about whether John Brown was a martyr or terrorist. Around here, the latter is the dominant answer. I never made up my mind until reading this book. Now I think I lean towards the former.

    You know I’m sold on anything by Tony Horwitz. I must needs borrow this from you – unless you got it from the library, then I’ll have to see if mine has it.
