Did you enjoy this project? We were asked to work on this project because we love to draw, it’s a hobby for us. We stayed after school to complete our work because it was fun and we were committed to the project.
About: We depicted John Brown’s raid because it is something in history that is important us. It is part of the rich history of our town and country. John Brown knew that ending slavery would not come easy. We used patriotic colors and parts of the American flag are evident in our work.
