Looking back at my first campaign in 2013 I cringe a little haha. But it’s true what they say, the more you practice the better you get... and starting somewhere is always the hardest part. My aesthetic has improved thanks to marketplaces like #creativemarket + you get to support fellow creatives in the process - it’s a win win 😁 #sportsluxevintage#campaigndesign

•John Brown/Harpers Ferry•
~”I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood. I had, as I now think, vainly flattered myself that without very much bloodshed, it might be done.”- John Brown on his execution day on the 2, December 1859.
Mr. John Brown pictured above in both pictures was a radical abolitionist (was anti-slavery). He was born way up North in Connecticut, and was surrounded by Northerners and their anti-slavery beliefs. He married twice, and had twenty children. These children would follow in his footsteps and join different abolitionist movements he did. Brown was a famous conductor of the Under Ground Railroad which helped slaves escape from the south into the north (not an actual railroad). Eventually he moved to the Kansas-Nebraska territory and here he learned much more about the South and how it’s personality was based around slavery.
On the 24, May 1856 Brown took a few men to Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas. Here, a massacre carried out by Mr. Brown would unfold. Brown and the men took “supposed” slave owners and their sons, and hacked them to death. Five men were killed by a brutal hacking in the creek. Brown did this in hopes of stirring slaves in the south to help join him in his rebellion. Brown’s plan was just beginning.
In 1859, after finishing his sentence for the brutal crime he committed, he lived near Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Here he mapped out a plan that included raiding the Federal Arsenal. His plan was to take twenty one men (followers of his his anti-slavery movement), raid the Arsenal and arm him; his men, and slaves throughout the area with guns to leave a scar on the South. However the plan did not go as planned. On the 16, October 1859 Brown, and his twenty one men raided the Federal Arsenal of Harpers Ferry, Virginia. But the slaves did not rebel. They feared what their masters would do to them if they were caught, and that they’d be sent to the gallows. Fear had overcome a simple touch of freedom for them. Robert E. Lee sent U.S. Marines to capture, and or kill Brown and his men. Brown was caught... CONTINUED IN COMMENTS⬇️
