#HarpersFerryRaid Real Gz! John Brown leads a Anti-Slavery Raid/Slave Rebellion on U.S. Arsenal October 16-18 1859 in Virginia The New Afrikan Freedom Fighters you should know Osborne, Lewis, Newby, Greene, Copeland ultimate goal Independent Maroon Settlements _ Black Freedom Fighters in John Brown’s Army: Lewis Sheridan Leary, Dangerfield Newby John A. Copeland Jr., Shields Green Osborne Perry Anderson! _ 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
Took a train solo to Harper’s Ferry with no real plans, hiked the AT south. Found a terribly old but good stealth campsite, rebuilt a fire ring, had a fire, ate mashed potatoes, had some bourbon. Best evening.

Harpers Ferry WV 🍂
Day 4 Complete: 10.4 miles, 48 stories, 21,575 steps. It was the final day of our journey through the Maryland section of the AT. Finished it off with a warm pot of coffee at the peak. What a great trip, totaling 53 miles or so. It was full of ups and downs as well as unusual terrain changes. Definitely a trip for the books and recommend it to all. #wildandwonderful #moutaindoo #maryland #sobo #happyfathersday #appalachiantrail #neature #harpersferry

Maryland Heights, 1500 feet and 3.1 winding miles up, a modest little climb for some and the sort of thing a seasoned AT hiker knocks out during breakfast....a considerable challenge for the current skinnyfat blubbery sack of wind-sucking goo I call a body. Am I old now? What is this, "cardio" you speak of? WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE, AND YOUNG! From the top you have a perfect view of the convergence of the shenandoah and potomac rivers and the little picturesque town of Harpers Ferry in between, still made mostly of centuries old brick and stone. Hoping to get up there before winter strikes and get the iconic photo I have wanted for a long time, but for now this shot will do. #theonlyroadhome #marylandheights #harpersferry #harpersferrywv #wva #westvirginia #usa #roadtrip #roadtripart #roadtripphotography #photography #travelphotos #travel #americana #america #landscape #makestuff #create #harpersferrynps #nps #nationalparks #shenandoah #potomac #appalachiantrail

Flying in from #Delhi , I had a nice view of #HarpersFerry and my home state of #WestVirginia . Note how the clouds track the #PotomacRiver . #ThomasJefferson described the image as follows: “The passage of the Potomac through the Blue Ridge is perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in Nature.” No doubt.

159 years ago on October 18 Harpers Ferry was attacked by Anti-Slavery Insurgent John Brown. Very historical and beautiful place for a short getaway!
October 18th,1859- Robert E. Lee and JEB Stuart plan an attack against John Brown and his raiders at Harpers Ferry. At 6:30 am, Stuart signals Marine Lieutenant Israel Green who storms the firehouse holding the raiders and their hostages. Five of Brown's Raiders escape. The rest are caught or killed. #Todayinhistory #virginia #americanhistory #harpersferry

Harpers Ferry - The Appalachian Trail, the C&O Canal Towpath, and the Maryland Heights trail all cross this spot. . The @appalachiantrail runs with the Towpath on the approach to Harpers Ferry, which is a nice break from the steep switchbacks just prior. . . . #harpersferry #apps lachiantrail #at #rv #rvlife #campinglife #camping #motorhome #adventure #family #travel #travelingfamily #travelingteen #travelingtoddler #wanderlust #bucketlist #homeiswhereyouparkit

October 18, 1859. After abolitionist John Brown, with 21 men, seize the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry, VA on the 16th. The U.S. Marines under Colonel Robert E. Lee (In two years he becomes the famous Confederate General) who were called in to stop the rebellion storm the fire house, later nicknamed “John Brown’s Fort”, and capture the raiders, killing several. John Brown is later hanged in Virginia for treason. _______________ #ushistory #americanhistory #history #usa #american #america #tagafriend #tagsomeone #tagaperson #johnbrown #john #brown #harpersferry #virginia #va #raid #civilwar #robertelee #lee #marine #marines
18 October 1859 -- Marines at Harpers Ferry⠀ ⠀ In October 1859, the abolitionist John Brown sought to incite a slave uprising by seizing weapons and hostages from the Harpers Ferry arsenal. The rapid deployment of Lieutenant Israel Greene and his Marines from the Washington Barracks provided an immediate storming party. Charging the building under fire with a battering ram, the Marines cut down the defenders and rescued the hostages.⠀ ⠀ The sledgehammer pictured here is one of the three used by Marines on October 18, 1859, in an attempt to break down the doors of the Engine House where John Brown was hole up with his hostages. It was picked up by Dr. Robert Randolph, an eyewitness to the events at Harpers Ferry. Upon Dr. Randolph’s death, the sledge was left to Joseph A. Seward who subsequently sold the sledge at an auction in 1914, where a relative of the donor’s family purchased it.⠀ ⠀ Find out more about the Marines at Harpers Ferry and see the sledgehammer in our Defending the New Republic gallery.⠀ ⠀ #OTD #HarpersFerry #USMC #Marines #American #History #TDIH #Learn #Facts #Artifact

harpers ferry is old and spooky and I love it 🖤
"Lately I’ve thinking about my future self and wondering if I will regret not doing as much as I could while I was as young and as free as I am now. You don’t know how many weekends you are going to get. Get out there and challenge yourself! ⠀ I just finished a short section hike of West Virginia and Maryland this weekend because I may not live near the Appalachian Trail much longer. There are so many “ifs” in life, some we can control like where we live or what career we want, but there are others we can’t even imagine their possibility (be them good or bad). I’m happy now knowing that I won’t look back and kick myself for never doing the MD/WV section of the AT. I made some great memories, had some laughs with good people and refueled my pride in myself all by just taking a very long walk in the woods." #withguthook ⠀ ⠀ #appalachiantrail #guthookguides #at #hike #hikeyourownhike #passion #live #getoutthere #adventure #forest #masondixonline #masondixon #pa #md #wv #harpersferry #hikelikeagirl #shelter ⠀ 📷: @kaydubsthehikingscientist
