150th Commemoration of John Brown's Execution (Dec. 2, 1859)

Recently, I put together a display commemorating John Brown's execution, with the help of a colleague. John Brown, the famous abolitionist, had a Western Reserve Academy connection. The pictorial journal below shows photos, artifacts and historical information about this connection to WRA. The display is available for viewing at the lower level of the John D. Ong Library on the campus of Western Reserve Academy. Also, read my earlier post about John Brown.
