Join author, Cynthia Goetz as she discusses John E Cook. Cook, a stone-cutter’s son from Haddam, Connecticut became a Captain in John Brown’s army and helped light the spark that ignited the Civil War. Goetz illustrates Cook’s journey from his earliest days in Haddam, including his time spent listening to the fiery sermons of Henry Ward Beecher, through the battlefields of Bleeding Kansas, to his adventures with John Brown at Harper’s Ferry and his final escape and capture on the Underground Railroad. Goetz, who resides in the boyhood home of John E. Cook in Haddam, has done considerable research on Cook – the man whom John Brown considered a traitor to the cause, but whose tombstone describes him as a “noble patriot”.
