    Young Private Quinn did die in the attack on Harper’s Ferry. He was a soldier doing what he must to hold his position, and yes all involved in this failed raid should be memorialized at John and Mary Brown’s Farm… the likes of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee, Jeb Stuart, and John Wilkes Booth are perfect examples of “Southern Pride” and men that defended the obscene act of owning fellow human beings. John and his small group of militants ignited the spark that would change the tide of American slavery and inspire us to lead the world in giving equal rights to all regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity. So say their names, remember their sacrifice and honor their heroic demise. Alpha to Omega!
