"Posterity will owe everlasting thanks to John Brown for lifting up once more to the gaze of a nation grown fat and flabby on the garbage of lust and oppression, a true standard of heroic philanthropy, and each coming generation will pay its installment of the debt. . . . John Brown saw slavery through no mist or cloud, but in a light of infinite brightness, which left no one of its ten thousand horrors concealed." Frederick Douglass

It was an honor indeed for your blogger to be a co-presenter at the "John Brown Coming Home" Symposium, Lake Placid, N.Y., on December 5, 2009, with Dr. Margaret Washington, Professor of History, Cornell University. Most recently, Margaret has authored the scholarly masterpiece, Sojourner Truth's America (University of Illinois Press, 2009), which Ellen Carol DuBois calls "a tour de force of extraordinary research, powerful writing, and compassionate historical reconstruction."
