The Commonwealth of Virginia tried John Brown at the courthouse in Charlestown, Virginia, Judge Richard Parker presiding. After a trial of five days and a jury deliberation of under an hour, he was found guilty on all charges. He was sentenced to death on November 2, 1859 and hanged exactly a month later.
