Summary
A look inside a complex man, farmer and warrior, family man and avenging angel, to reveal the man behind the legend. He is the father of American terrorism-- and an inspiration to the Civil Rights movement. More than 150 years after his execution, questions swirl around John Brown: was he a madman or a martyr? A bloodthirsty fanatic or a great American hero? Draws on interviews with historians and writers, including novelist Russell Banks, and stunning dramatic reenactments to trace one man's obsessive battle against human bondage
