Say you want a revolution

The New Yorker has an excellent article on the new biography of John Brown. I've been meaning to read All on Fire, the biography of William Lloyd Garrison, for some time, but it sounds like this newer volume might be more interesting, especially if it has as much to say on the concepts of the code of honor and violence as the New Yorker piece suggests.

I can't seem to find the provisional constitution Brown drafted online. Alas for the limitations of the internet.
