This week, the Twittersphere witnessed the anniversary of John Brown’s execution which occurred on December 2nd, one hundred fifty nine years ago. A published transcription of the last letter he wrote to his wife and children urging them to “abhor, with undying hatred also, that sum of all villainies-Slavery,” made the rounds.
