Veterans' Grandson Was Affiliated With John Brown


Abolitionist John Brown's aide was Aaron Dwight Stevens.  He had ancestors in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.  He served in the Mexican War.

From John Brown, Volumes 1-2

The notification that Aaron Dwight Stevens' court martial sentence was commuted was written by then Secretary of War Jefferson Davis.
