Confluence: Harper's Ferry as Destiny - presented by Dennis Frye
No one in Harpers Ferry expected John Brown. No one anticipated the Teutonic quake that emanated from the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. No one could predict the disaster of civil war upon Harpers Ferry. Nearly 3,000 inhabitants called Harpers Ferry home when John Brown struck. One year into the Civil War, only 100 residents remained. Confluence: Harpers Ferry as Destiny is personal. Stories derived from dozens of unpublished letters, journals and diaries bring to life the past people of a charmed but tormented town.
