More information about Final Jeopardy:
After John Brown led an abolitionist insurgency which took over a U.S. arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, President James Buchanan ordered a company of U.S. Marines, led by Robert E. Lee, to attack and re-take the arsenal; two years later, Lee resigned from the U.S. Army to become a commander of the Confederate States Army.
Harpers Ferry became part of West Virginia a few years later during the Civil War.
