A TRUE STORY

He’s one of the most controversial figures in American history, Captain John Brown. As a young boy he swore he’d dedicate his life to the struggle against slavery.  He embarked on a mission, along with his brood and like-minded fellow Americans, to be mild with the mild, shrewd with the crafty, confiding to the honest, rough to the ruffian and to the liar-- a THUNDERBOLT!

19th century.  Old John Brown, is on a mission from God to eliminate slavery from US soil. Some call him a terrorist and a madman, others a hero and a prophet. Old Brown leaves the battleground of Kansas heading east to assemble a motley crew of 21 men to raid the town’s armory, with the end goal of arming and abetting black slaves across the south to rise against their masters. Brown and his gang’s zealotry for the cause against slavery were beyond self-sacrifice and if dying is part of the plan surrender certainly it’s not an option.

From author and illustrator, Wilfred Santiago, creator of the New York Times bestselling graphic novel, Michael Jordan: Bull On Parade and 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente.
