  Harpers Ferry Armory and Arsenal
by lmkluque

The site of the United States Arsenal made famous by John Brown's raid, a critical event preceding the Civil War.

However, the HF Armory and Arsenal was important on it's own. Not only was this a place where arms and military equipment belonging to the United States were stored, they were also produced here.

During the Civil War Harpers Ferry changed hands from North to South and back again many times. Of course, eventually it reverted back to Union possession and is now part of the US National Historic Park system for all of us to tour and enjoy.
