MR DEVOW, What is the Spookiest thing you Have seen so Far?

It was strategic supply depot during the Civil War for the Union Army (for a while). The Union leadership made Stonewall Jackson (a southern general) look like a genius by not defending the garrison properly so the south said "thank you very much, we'll take that" and they did.

I was going to reply, but J.Allen, who I believe to be an extremely knowledgeable historian, beat me to it! other note about Harper's Ferry...It was where the fanatical abolitionist John Brown failed in his attempt to seize guns from the local rifle manufacturing plant(an arsenal) and an armory. He planned to arm the local slaves for a revolt against their masters. The plan failed and Brown was executed for treason.
