    Plotted in secret, launched in the dark, John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry was a pivotal moment in U.S. history. But few Americans know the true story of the men and women who launched a desperate strike at the slaveholding South. Now, Midnight Rising portrays Brown's uprising in vivid color, revealing a country on the brink of explosive conflict. Brown, the descendant of New England Puritans, saw slavery as a sin against America's founding principles. Unlike most abolitionists, he was willing to take up arms, and in 1859 he prepared for battle at a hideout in Maryland....

    Story

    This is a well written, well researched book that really gives the reader a feel for all the people involved. The author draws from the letters and writings of John Brown and his followers and brings the people he is writing about alive. I got "to know" the people and why they took the actions that they did.
