This conclusion analyzes John Brown's treason trial in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. Frank Leslie's published several illustrations of Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry and its legal aftermath. The raid on Harpers Ferry was the last and most sensational of the era's legal crises over slavery, marking the end of abolitionist efforts to construct antebellum print culture as a forum for interracial political collaboration and black civic agency.
