Read full description of the books Mine Eyes Have Seen:This is the story of the time spent just before John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry from the preceptive of his 15 year old daughter, Annie. Annie and her sister-in-law spent several months at the Kennedy Farm where John Brown was stratigizing and assembling his men. Annie struggles with the love/hate relationship that she and her siblings have with her father and his God-like attitude in his mission to free the slaves.
I was able to visit the privitaly owned Kennedy Farm this past fall and had read other account about Annie Brown's time spent here. Combining the visit and this book truly brought history to life. A good book for teen readers.
