Evangelical abolitionist John Brown became an icon of American history when he led a raid on a federal armory at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia in an attempt to foment a movement to free enslaved people in the region in October 1859. Before that, he left a legacy in Lake Placid, New York and in Connecticut. 

A new Showtime series titled “The Good Lord Bird” – based on the novel by James McBride – explores Brown’s life. WAMC spoke with Torrington, Connecticut Historical Society Executive Director Mark McEachern about Brown’s roots in New England.
