I went to take Old Brown, but Old Brown took me.

-Henry C. Pate

Welcome to the Virtual Tour of The Black Jack Battlefield & Nature Park traveling exhibit!

We had our debut in October 2009 at the Commemoration of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry.

This virtual tour will take you through each of the eight panels that make up the free standing display.

As you visit each panel you will learn about John Brown, Henry Clay Pate, Brown's comrades in battle including
Robert Hall Pearson, the Santa Fe trail, Bleeding Kansas, the Battle of Black Jack, and the legacy of the battle.

This exhibit was made possible by a grant from the Kansas Humanties Council.

Begin the tour by clicking a thumbnail image below ~ each one will open up a new window to view the panel.
