One quiet autumn morning the United States was suddenly attacked by a small band of determined men inspired by a charismatic religious fanatic. The emotional response by the entire country to an unprovoked raid, which caused the deaths of innocent civilians, lead the United States to war. The year was 1859, the place was Harpers Ferry, Virginia, and the leader was John Brown.
