OMG I GOT A LIKE from @Lin_Manuel! Here is a song from my upcoming musical about historical memory and the corpse of John Brown, told from the perspective of his widow and Osborne Anderson, the lone black survivor of the Harper’s Ferry raiding party! https://twitter.com/kansasalps/status/1106364586935152640?s=21
 
HORRIBLE/FUN FACT: Osborne Anderson lived on to join the Union army and see the end of slavery. He was buried in Columbian Harmony cemetery in DC. BUT THEN HE AND THE ENTIRE AFRICAN AMERICAN CEMETERY WHERE HE WAS BURIED WAS DUG UP FOR THE RHODE ISLAND METRO STOP.
 
They moved the bodies to a cemetery in Maryland, but not the memorials or monuments. Years later, some of the tombstones were found dumped on the banks of the Potomac.
 
Also making a series of portraits, including this one of Osborne Anderson
 
And this piece of John Brown’s widow and two of his daughters
just a reminder that this is *not normal* https://twitter.com/gtconway3d/status/1108342289217261568
