Abstract

Henry Clarke Wright's 'The Natick Resolution' praised John Brown's October 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry as a heroic act. 'The Natick Resolution', which issued from a public meeting in Massachusetts, achieved national prominence for its endorsement of violence as a necessary tool to end slavery in the United States.
