  • Bleeding Kansas By: Kayla Papacek
  • May 30, 1854...
  • The Kansas-Nebraska Act will solve the disputes that have been occurring . This act will allow those who reside in those two states to vote on whether they wish to be a free or slave state. 
  • Later in the mid-1800's...
  • Did you hear about the new act put in place? We need to take action and head to Kansas to cast our vote!
  •      People from the North and the South were traveling to Kansas to illegally cast their vote on whether the states would enter the United States as a free or slave state.  Only about half the ballet was done by registered voters and, within those registered voters, about 20 out of 600 people were legal residents.
  • VOTE
  • The sacking of Lawrence, Kansas was a major event within "Bleeding Kansas".  It took place on May 21, 1956, when proslavery groups caused destruction in the city in order to get rid of abolitionist influence.
  • Destroy everything! The state of Kansas will be a slave state and we will make sure of it!
  • Lecompton Constitution
  • The Lecompton Constitution was developed in order to make slavery legal in the state of Kansas. This was one of the most important documents among those who were pro-slavery at the time. Although, the constitution was rejected by U.S House of Representatives and the voters of Kansas.
  • Kansas soon enters the Union in 1861 as a free state.
