      The sesquicentennial anniversary of John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry will be observed with an academic symposium October 14–17, a procession from the Kennedy Farm in Maryland to the Ferry on the night of October 16, and three days of activities sponsored by the U.S. Park Service. This is the kick-off event for the Civil War Sesquicentennial. President Obama has been invited to attend. (No word yet on whether he will do so.)

      Detailed information on the academic symposium is available here: http://www.harpersferryhistory.org/johnbrown/index.htm.
      Information on all events, including the October 16 procession and the USPS commemoration October 16–18 available here: http://www.johnbrownraid.org/events.php.
