John Brown kills slavers
John Brown ends the life of several slave owners with sons.
Why and how did he do it?
John Brown armed with nothing but a broad sword and his sons managed to kill several Pottawatomie slave owners. Believing that he was gods weapon to fight slavery he killed several slave owning men. The Pottawatomie Massacre occurred during the night of May 24 and the morning of May 25, 1856. In reaction to the sacking of Lawrence, Kansas by pro-slavery forces, John Brown and a band of abolitionist settlers — some of them members of the Pottawatomie Rifles — killed five settlers north of Pottawatomie Creek in Franklin County, Kansas. This was one of the many bloody episodes in Kansas preceding the American Civil War, which came to be known collectively as Bleeding Kansas. Bleeding Kansas was largely brought about by the Missouri Compromise and Kansas–Nebraska Act.
