H-NC seeks to serve North Carolina’s diverse history communities by encouraging interaction and providing an outlet for the exchange of ideas.
You are invited to Bennett College for "The Harper's Ferry Five: Tracing the Roots of John Brown’s Actual Plan for 1859, and the Southern Black Freedom Fighters who Joined Him," A talk by Peter H. Wood.
John Brown is well-known, but his design for the 1859 Raid at Harper’s Ferry remains largely misunderstood, and the African Americans in his party are virtually unknown. They included Lewis Sheridan Leary (born in Fayetteville), and John Anthony Copeland (born in Raleigh).
