Portrayal of Private William Webb, Civil War Soldier of the 29th Connecticut Volunteers
Then, in 1859, a white gentleman from Torrington, Mr. John Brown, took up the same vision that Nat had and John Brown tried to overthrow slavery.
But he was also captured
and he was hung.
Then, in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and the African American was set FREE!
Freedom! Said it sounds good and it sounds nice. Got to be free!
