John Brown's Raid on Harpers Ferry

I was just reading an article on how this weekend marks the 150th anniversary of John Brown's raid on the Federal armory at Harpers Ferry, and it struck me that this would be an interesting topic for Librivox to cover.

Sez Wikipedia : According to Circular 38a of the U.S. Copyright Office, Iran has no official copyright relations whatsoever with the United States. Published works originating in Ir...

I think it would be fantastic - every Australian book I want to read seems to fall foul of USA or Aussie rules - it was either written after 1922 or the author lived to some ripe old age instead of dying in 1954 like they should have :evil: How about My Brilliant Career (1901) by Miles Franklin (18...

Yes, because American children can't figure out what a Philosopher's Stone is, or that a jumper is a sweater and not a girl's dress; and oh my gosh maybe they said petrol instead of gasoline (horrors); and we might all just shrivel up and die if we had to read something that actually SOUNDS LIKE IT...
