|Harpers Ferry in 1880|
The National Park Service identified SIX themes which run through the town's history: Industry, Natural Heritage, Transportation, John Brown, Civil War, and African American history. I had heard about John Brown and the Civil War at Harpers Ferry--but didn't realize that it was the place where the first successful American Railroad arrived. And I didn't know that it had one of the first integrated schools in the United States.
What I did know was the story about John Brown's attack on slavery, and I knew that at Harpers Ferry, there was the largest surrender of Federal troops during the Civil War. If you want to read more about Harper's Ferry, click HERE.

What do you remember MOST about John Brown????? I remember the old song which we sung (called John Brown's Body) to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic... Remember that song??? You'll need to google it on You Tube to hear it.
