Lets go into Kansas and mess with their establishment
Why should we, we don't even live there
In 1854 the Kansas-Nebraska act got rid of the Missouri Compromise which had given order to the free and slave states. This caused both states to become a slave or free state by popular sovereignty. This was when they decided based on how many pro-slavery or non-slavery people were in the states.
You are all traitors, you all will be arrested
All the people from the North and the South came rushing into Kansas so they could gain territory. The North and South both wanted to have the most land. The South so they would take Kansas as a slave state. The North so they could take Kansas as a free state. all one big race hoping they would win what they thought was right.
WE WILL GET REVENGE !!!!!
I agree let's do this!!
A lot of violence started to happen in Kansas because of not being able to decided if they were a free or slave state. When it came time to vote many people from other slave states crossed over into Kansas to vote illegally. They did this to push Kansas to become a slave state.
A pro-slavery jury said that a anti-slavery town were traitors. This town was named Lawrence and was full of anti-slavery people and because they did not agree with slavery they wanted to get rid of everyone in the town. The Jury sent to arrest everyone and burned the whole pace down.
John Brown and a band of abolitionist settlers took wanted to take revenge for the sacking of Lawrence. Pro-Slavery men were killed by the north of Pottawatomie Creek by John Brown and his men. This was one of the largest massacres that lead to bleeding Kansas.
Bleeding Kansas was the biggest massacre in the Civil War. There were over 200 deaths that were caused by this. This was the cause of not being able to decided or make the decision if Kansas was going to be a free or slave state. People lead to violence to determine whether Kansas would be free or slave.
