John brown has got to be one of the more influential nobodies in history..
Just like the guy who assassibated the arch duke Ferdinand..
The really crazy thing about him is he was maybe the only person in that time with a modern view of race relations...
While basically everyone else (abolitionists included) could make your average modern KKK member blush..
John brown was literally willing to give his life to abolish slavery and give all Americans the same rights.
He was just a super interesting figure..
A failure AT everything else he ever did and ends up making the history books..
