    This video shows all the experiences and events that shaped the thinking and actions of John Brown. It gives you insight and the history into the life that he lived from a child to his death. This is a must have for anybody interested in the Civil War because John Brown's actions may have been the cause of the start of the war.

    Excellent version of the sory

    Comments about PBS American Experience: John Brown's Holy War DVD:

    I use this with my 8th grade American Studies students. It opens with a powerful scene of Brown traveling in a wagon, sitting on his own coffin. This very much captures the students' interest. As the story progresses, it does an excellent job of showing the conflict Brown faced, as he tried to provide for his family and fulfill his vow to end slavery. This is an essential tale that must be understood in order to understand how the Civil War came to be.
