John Brown was a man during the time of the Civil War and he was very much opposed to slavery. As matter of fact, he would go about trying to stop slavery. Most of the ways in which he tried to stop slavery was through violence. Some people think that john brown might’ve been crazy because who rant and rave a lot. Some other people believe that he did a lot of good.

Since his cause was favorable in the eyes of people today, he is probably viewed as a patriot instead of the terrorist. However during those times he hurt many people who got his way in order to stop slavery. Therefore people would assume that he was a terrorist due to his actions.
