John Brown and the Abolitionist Ministry.
Knee, Stuart
Negro History Bulletin, v45 n2 p36-37,42 Apr-Jun 1982
John Brown's death did not cause the Civil War; it precipitated the conflict. Many ministers anticipated the war and hurried its outbreak by canonizing a fanatic. By 1859, the abolitionists needed a martyr to infuse new emotion into their cause and seized upon John Brown to fill this role. (Author/GC)
