ABOUT THE NAME

In 1859, Akron-area resident and abolitionist John Brown led a raid on Harpers Ferry trying to arm slaves for an anti-slavery revolt. The attack failed and he was captured by none other than Robert E Lee. He was tried, convicted, and hanged. The tensions that arose as a result of this raid are said to have accelerated the start of the civil war.
