Are you glad that John Brown was hanged? [View all]

In 1859, Brown attempted to start an anti-slavery rebellion in the South. The attempt was unsuccessful. Some pro-slavers were killed.

Brown was executed. But his actions played an important role in starting the Civil War, which brought about the end of slavery.

Brown commited a crime to help end a horrible institution. Would you have cheered his punishment?
