Kansas was organized in 1854 as new territory by Congress. The decision weather slavery was premitted or not was left to the settlers.
Welcome to Kansas
Slavery or nah???
Slaveowners and farmers with no slaves immigrated, farmers outnumbered slaveowners. Both parties began to build up tension through rival elections etc. up until May 1856
The tensions led up to the attack on the town of Lawerence. Pro-slavers supplied with guns and shiskey attacked Lawerence. During these attacks the father of a man named John Brown died. This caused John Brown to become outraged, to the point where he planned for revenge
Brown seemed to have gone crazy. He beat a man with a cane causing serious injuries and he has also has snuck into a settlement near Pottawatomie Creek and dismembered 5 people. This caused both pro-slavers and abolitionists to arm their men. That year about 200 men were killed.
