The film centers on the controversial figure known for his 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry. John Brown hoped the attack would ignite a slave uprising. Instead it left 11 dead and led to Brown's capture, after which he was found guilty of treason and hanged. Political enemies considered Brown a madman and a terrorist but the notoriety of his violent attacks are credited with sparking the Civil War.
