John Brown was born on May 9th 1800 in Torrington Connecticut. Brown is best known as an American abolitionist. In 1859, Brown lead a raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry. The raid ended in his capture, trial, and hanging, but it sparked a liberation movement among enslaved Americans. Brown's influence and legacy would run deep and wide within American civil rights movements. Said best by David S. Reynolds, Brown is hailed as the man who "killed slavery, sparked the Civil War, and seeded civil rights." The popular Union marching song "John Brown's Body" further cemented Brown's legacy as an martyr and American hero. John Brown was made a Master Mason on May 11, 1824 at Hudson Lodge No. 68 in Hudson Ohio. Brother Brown was called from labor on December 2, 1859 and is said to have been buried with Masonic Honors.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the rapid shipping and delivery of my order, but also for the high quality product.... then symbols pen I purchased for my boss was exquisite and the craftsmanship was very impressive.
When I presented the pen to my boss this morning - his eyes lit up like a little boy, and no sooner than he was able to say thank you to me, he was dashing around the office showing the pen off to his lodge brothers who also work at our company.
Thank you again for the wonderful product and quick shipping! ”
