5. Harpers Ferry National Historical ParkHarpers Ferry John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry was an effort by armed abolitionist John Brown to initiate an armed slave revolt in 1859 by taking over a United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Brown's party of 22 was defeated by a company of U.S. Marines, led by First Lieutenant Israel Greene. Colonel Robert E. Lee was in overall command of the operation to retake the arsenal.

Exploring Abandoned Railroad Station And This Happened!
Exploring an historic abandoned train station. This is a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad depot along a short line railroad spur. The roof is falling in, the windows are broken out and the inside is vandalized. Indiana & Ohio Railway operates this branch line to Greenfield Ohio and the city of Greenfield owns the track. While I was exploring the train station a short local freight train came by on its way from Greenfield to Blanchester, Ohio. This station is in Leesburg Ohio. I also show the dilapidated train station in nearby Midland. The locomotive is seen stopping in Blanchester to end its work day. The train runs to Greenfield on Thursdays.
