Senate Committee investigating Harpers Ferry issues warrant for arrest of Frank Sanborn
Frank Sanborn was the youngest member of the notorious "Secret Six" that had funded and encouraged John Brown's activities. The Senate Committee investigating the Harpers Ferry Raid called him to testify and then issued a warrant for his arrest when he did not appear. Soon after the warrant was issued, Sanborn fled to Canada. He was arrested in April on his return but released on a writ of habeas corpus the next day. (By John Osborne)
