Storyboard Text

  • In 1854, the Kansas-Nebraska Act is passed by the U.S. Congress, allowing for the territories of both Kansas and Nebraska to become a slave or free state based on popular sovereignty rather than the geographical location.
  • Kansas-Nebraska Act
  • As a Missourian, I can vote illegally to help Kansas become a slave state...
  • Kansas will be a free state!
  • No! Kansas will be a slave state!
  • We won the votes, so slavery is legalized in this state!
  • Well we created our own government and abolished slavery through our own constitution!
  • Because of the rivalry, two groups were formed: anti-slavery settlers and pro-slavery settlers, and the rivalry does not stop there.
  • One night, John Brown, an extreme abolitionist, and six followers murdered five pro-slavery settlers one night, known as the Pottawatomie Massacre. The violence continued on for 6 years between the two groups.
  • Finally, on January 29, 1861, Kansas became a free state of the U.S.
