It was later published as a part of Echoes of Harper’s Ferry in 1860.
A Plea For Captain John Brown Summary
Thoreau’s essay espoused John Brown and his fight for abolition. In opposition with the popular opinion of the time – Thoreau vehemently refuted the claims of newspapers and his fellow countrymen who characterized Brown as foolish and insane – he painted a portrait of a peerless man whose embrace of a cause was unparalleled. Brown’s commitment to justice and adherence to the United States Constitution forced him to fight state-sponsored injustice, one he was only affected by in spirit.
