In 1859, Brown led an unsuccessful raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry that ended with the multi-racial group’s capture. Brown’s trial resulted in his conviction and a sentence of death by hanging. Brown’s attempt in 1859 to start a liberation movement among enslaved African Americans in Harpers Ferry, Virginia (later part of West Virginia), electrified the nation. He was tried for treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia.The idea of creating Maroon communities was the impetus for the creation of John Brown’s “Provisional Constitution and Ordinances for the People of the United States,” which helped to detail how such communities would be governed. However, the idea of Maroon colonies of slaves is not an idea exclusive to the Caribbean region. In fact, Maroon communities riddled the southern United States between the mid-1600s and 1864, especially theGreat Dismal Swamp region of Virginia and North Carolina. Similar to the Haitian Revolution, the Seminole Wars, fought in modern-day Florida, saw the involvement of Maroon communities, which although outnumbered by native allies were more effective fighters. https://newafrikan77.wordpress.com/2017/10/16/john-browns-raid-october-16-1859-the-new-afrikan-freedom-fighters-you-should-know-osborne-lewis-newby-greene-copeland/ #makeamericapayreparations #johnbrown #johnbrownsraid #johnbrownsraiders #virginia #westvirginia #midtermelections #dangerfieldnewby #harpersferry #harpersferrywv #osborneperryanderson #slaverebellions #virginialandoftherebellion #virginialandofrebellion #malcolmX #Harriettubman #natturner #gabrielprosser #denmarkvesey #charlesdeslondes #maroons #nannyofthemaroons #thisisamerica #harpersferryva #fuckdonaldtrump #kanywest
