Harpers Ferry Marks 150th Anniversary of John Brown's Raid

150 years ago in Harpers Ferry, John Brown led a raid on the town to capture weapons in an attempt to lead a slave uprising. His attempts were thwarted by U.S. troops and Brown was tried for treason and hanged. (Video by Michael Ruane, Edited by Ernesto Bailey/The Washington Post)
