Who led the raid on Harper's Ferry? Who Captured Him?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: John Brown led the orginial raid then the Government came after him, read on: the unit at Harpers Ferry was actually commanded by Lieut. J. Green and Major Russell, accompanied by Lieut.-Col. R. E. Lee, of the Second United States cavalry (with his aide, Lieut. J. E. B. Stuart, of the First United States cavalry).
Lieutenant Green was actually credited with the wounding and capturing of Brown.
I think you should point out the first person Brown killed Haywood Shepard was a free black who worked for the railroad.
God Bless The Southern People.
