Author: Daniel W. Voorhees - Daniel Wolsey Voorhees was a lawyer and United States Senator from Indiana, who was leader of the Democratic party and an anti-war Copperhead during the American Civil War.
Publisher: Murphy and Co.
City: Unknown
Year: 1859
Binding Style: Other - see description
Pagination: 40 pages
Width: 5.75" Height: 8.75"
Book Details: This very rare antique antebellum pamphlet by Daniel W. Voorhees was a defense of John E. Cook (12 May 1829 – 16 December 1859). Cook came from a well-to-do family and studied law in New York before joining Brown in Kansas to fight against slavery. An advance man for Brown, Cook moved to Harpers Ferry more than a year before the raid. He taught school and married Mary Virginia Kennedy. Gathering supplies during the raid, Cook was stranded on the Maryland shore. He traveled north with other raiders, but was captured in Pennsylvania and tried and hanged in Charles Town on December 16.

John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry (also known as John Brown's raid or The raid on Harpers Ferry; in many books the town is called "Harper's Ferry") was an effort by white abolitionist John Brown to initiate an armed slave revolt in 1859 by taking over a United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Brown's raid, accompanied by 21 men in his party, was defeated by a platoon of U.S. Marines led by Colonel Robert E. Lee. John Brown had originally asked Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, both of whom he had met in his formative years as an abolitionist in Springfield, Massachusetts, to join him in his raid, but Tubman was prevented by illness, and Douglass declined, as he believed Brown's plan would fail.
Condition / Notes: This antique American antebellum pamphlet is disbound from its original wrappers. The title page is loose. The pages show mild/moderate age toning/foxing.
