Storyboard Text

  • The Kansas Nebraska Act is now in effect.
  • I'm from the North. NO SLAVERY!
  • I'm from the South. KEEP SLAVERY!
  • It became a law, and that made anti-slavery supporters angry, because it would repeal the Missouri Compromise. It would also allow slave states the possibility if getting more power.
  • People from both the North and South started to settle in Kansas, until there was enough to vote on which it can be a slave state or not. It was basically a fight between Slave and Anti-Slave supporters.
  • Free the slaves!
  • YES!
  • "Border ruffians" went to Kansas from the slave states and voted illegally. This resulted in Kansas becoming a slave state.
  • You, Andrew Butler, are a disgusting man because you promote slavery.
  • A town named Lawrence was founded by Anti-Slave supporters. An army of 800 people were sent to arrest everyone. The anti-slavery head quarters is burned down and houses are looted.
  • John Brown and his followers killed 5 men in their houses while they were sleeping. They did this to fight against slavery. This would then start other rebellions and over 200 people will be murdered. That's why it was called "Bloody Kansas."
  • In the Senate, Charles Sumner (Massachusetts), verbally attacked Andrew Butler because he supported slavery. Butler's nephew, Preston Brooks (Congressmen), takes his cane and starts hitting Sumner in the head senselessly, in defence of his uncle.
