    Doing what’s right in the face of majority opposition when you know the consequence is death? Yes, I’d say that’s pretty incredible.

    Good Lord Bird I thought was pretty damn good. Not sure how accurate it was in portraying him basically as a crazy person but I enjoyed it.

    Fired the shots that lead to the escalation of the Civil War :idk:

    Abolitionists were not the ingroup, and abolitionists who believed in their cause to the point of taking up arms most certainly were not.

    resisted any efforts to get rescued from jail while awaiting his execution because he believed (correctly) his death would do more to harm the institution of slavery than escaping would
