Praise

“Many books have been written about the how, why, and meaning of John Brown’s failed attempt to provoke a slave uprising in northern Virginia, but Ron Field’s Avenging Angel: John Brown’s Raid on Harpers Ferry 1859 … has a very distinct contextual focus on the raid as paramilitary operation, unsurprising given its placement within Osprey’s Raid series. The background is there — Brown’s prior abolitionist career, along with brief biographical information about each participant, and what they hoped to accomplish by seizing Harpers Ferry — but the heart of the book’s 80 pages is a detailed, blow-by-blow account of the raid and the armed state (Maryland and Virginia) and federal response.”
