Miss Sarah Brown

ByMary Miller Chiao

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In 1859, Abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his attempt to seize the Federal Arsenal at Harpers Ferry. Sarah Brown was thirteen years old at the time, living with her family in North Elba, New York. With the assistance of her father’s abolitionist supporters, she was sent to be educated at Concord, Massachusetts, the seat of the Transcendental Movement in America. She lived first at the home of Ralph Waldo Emerson and later with the family of Louisa May Alcott. She often met Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Thoreau in her walks through the area. Later she attended Fort Edward Institute in New York where she discovered her love for art. In 1863, Sarah, her mother, and other family members joined a wagon train to the West. They eventually settled in the small mountain town of Saratoga, California. Sarah Brown was a gifted artist, valued member of the community, and a supporter for Asian issues at a time when prejudice was rampant.
