Fair enough. Though given how many slaves actually flocked to Brown's cause, I'm not sure he was as inspirational as he wanted to be. We can, of course, say that the slave owners prevented them from joining Brown. But I seem to recall that he was expecting them to rise up to overthrow their shackles and join him. Given the aftermath of previous slave rebellions, I'm not sure how many would have.

But personally, Brown was a terrorist.
