To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams.

The story of John Brown’s Raid is one of tremendous import to Civil War Historians. This chronicle of the famous abolitionist’s raid on a federal armory—and his subsequent capture—is meticulously captured in this retelling from the era. A key location in the politics of the Civil War, Harper’s Ferry plays a seminal role in understanding the temperature of the country, and divisions within each side. This historical account is a must-have for every Civil War buff.
