His plan was to go sneak around when none of the slave owners were around at night and arm all the slaves with weapons and supplies so that the slaves could go attack the people that are holding them and help out the other slaves that were in danger. While they were trying to do this John Brown got captured during the attack and they took him away but he then got out soon after when it was over with.
