An ''Idea of Things in Kansas'': John Brown's 1857 New England Speech
Not available online
TitleAn ''Idea of Things in Kansas'': John Brown's 1857 New England Speech
AbstractIncludes a photograph of the handwritten speech as well as a typescript of it which Brown gave on his trip back to the east coast during 1857. Also included with the article is "A Brief Chronology of John Brown", starting with his birth on May 9, 1800 and ending with the date of his hanging, December 2, 1859.
NotesBrown as a speaker was variously described. Recalling the speech later in his own 'A Plea for Captain John Brown,' Thoreau thought him something of 'a volcano with an ordinary chimney-flue'.
