Commemorating John Brown: Hero, Villain, or Neither?

John Brown is a polarizing historical character, commemorated in more than a dozen states and around the world, and he means different things to different people—he might be seen as a hero, a villain, or a victim; crazy, brave, violent or saintly. This program explores a “trail of memory” that follows the path of his 1858-1859 liberation/raid into Vernon County, MO, when Brown and his men retaliated against the Missouri Bushwhacker-led Marais des Cygnes massacre outside of Trading Post, KS.
