view from the armory site

before the civil war, the main source of industry in harpers ferry was the US armory. the site of john brown's fort - one of the armory buildings he commandeered during his antislavery revolt - is marked by the little obelisk. after the armory was destroyed during the war, harper's ferry was never really the same again.
