Who is this Guy?

Hint: it's not Moses. First one to guess right gets bragging rights.

OOH! OOH! OOOH! Pick me! [/handraised]

That's John Brown, the militant ass-kicking anti-slavery guy who put Harper's Ferry on the map. He never heard about peaceful protest (probably because of all the gunfire).

Whatever, dorsey just put his mouse over the picture and saw that the file's name was 'johnbrown3.jpg'.

He made up all that other stuff.

So if there's an award to be handed out, it's to Zeke for doofusitude. :P

Seriously Dorse, did you know that was Brown?

Interesting historical fact: the army detachment that captured Brown and his raiders was commanded by none other than Colonel Robert E. Lee.

Babe does this mean Missy won't draw you another pic for your blog?

Love you

I'd like her to. I had other reasons for using this guy, and I'll fill you in.

In defense of Dorsey, I don't think he is smart enough to find out the way I did!


I'm on a roll! :):)

I knew it was John Brown, but only because that portrait is on the cover of the first Kansas album. Yes, I am that old...

I feel like I've seen that painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art here in NYC ?? If that's it, it's in the modern or contemporary American section.

I'm browsing Zeke's archives looking for something else and stumbled across this old post, only to find that my integrity has been questioned BY A TEXAN!

Well, if you can quit buggering armadillos for five minutes, and uncork your nose from John Calvin's french rectum, it might occur to you that American history consists of a bit more than a bunch of rednecks getting their asses handed to them at the Alamo.


Yes indeed, I knew that picture was John Brown (it never occurred to me to click on the picture). His raid on Harper's Ferry was a seminal event in the advent of the Civil War. In fact, there was an episode of "The American Experience" which featured Brown prominently.

I forgot about the Kansas cover. I'm that old, too.
