John Brown's infamous 1859 raid on the government munitions depot at Harper's Ferry, intended to spark a widespread revolt amongst Virginia's slaves, marked more than just the opening of America's civil war. It also proved to the young nation's passage from bumptious innocence into troubled adulthood.
'Cloudsplitter' is an utterly compelling story, a furious, sprawling drama and a tragedy of near-classic proportions.
