Lot Details
JOHN BROWN GANG INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH.
HYATT, THADDEUS. 1816-1901. Photograph Signed ("Thaddeus Hyatt") and Inscribed, 7 1/4 in tall oval portrait on original 12 x 9 in mount, inscribed on the image "Not for Myself" and on the lower margin of mount, "Remember me, not as an Individual, But as the Incarnation of a Principle: For Man is Ephemeral, But Principles are Eternal! Thaddeus Hyatt / to his friend Miss Myrtle Minor," and dated from the Washington Jail, June 2, 1860, spotting, eyes with old re-touching.

PENNED FROM WASHINGTON JAIL WHERE HYATT WAS IMPRISONED FOR REFUSING TO TESTIFY AFTER JOHN BROWN'S RAID ON HARPER'S FERRY. Thaddeus Hyatt was a committed yet flamboyant abolitionist. In the 1850s he led antislavery immigrants to Kansas and raised money and probably provided arms to John Brown for his raid on Harper's Ferry. Hyatt's refusal to reply to the Senate's subpoena earned him a stint in jail, from March 6 to June 15, 1860. In the event the Senate investigative committee and failed to procure his testimony (or that of other key witnesses) and disbanded.
