Choose Let's Use Free Speech to Praise John Brown

John Brown (1800-1859), a maligned and condemned abolitionist, lived a great life. His heroic deeds to end slavery deserve our attention and praise.

As I have said elsewhere, "Unlike many Christians, John Brown fought injustice. He focused on slavery, calling it 'the sum of all villanies'. We have no holiday to honor hero John Brown." So let us affirm the heroism of John Brown.

Evan Carton's book Patriotic Treason: John Brown and the Soul of America inspired me to appreciate John Brown.

People dislike John Brown, but let us honor him.

People denounce John Brown, but let us exalt him.

People demonize John Brown, but let us praise him.

John Brown earned the honor of history deeming him a hero, so read this book to join me in celebrating his life, death, and legacy.
