John Brown, Description of Kennedy Farm (Reynolds, 2005)

David S. Reynolds, John Brown, Abolitionist: The Man Who Killed Slavery, Sparked the Civil War, and Seeded Civil Rights, rev. ed. (New York: Vintage Books, 2005), 297-298.
Living conditions at the Kennedy farm were primitive and crowded. The farmhouse consisted of two rooms, one of the first floor and the other above it. The downstairs room served as kitchen, parlor, and living room. Upstairs was a dormitory, storage area, and military training space. Furniture was sparse. Boxes were used as seats, and the men slept on the floor. The dining table was made of rough boards.
