Additional Details

The final redoubt of John Brown's rebellion is shown in its early days as a tourist attraction in its original site (it was temporarily moved to Chicago in 1891). "John Brown's Fort" has been painted across the tops of the front doors. This print (and perhaps the original photograph) was created by Russell & Co. of Baltimore.
