Bleeding Kansas

Bleeding Kansas, Bloody Kansas or the Border War, was a series of violent political confrontations involving anti-slavery Free-Staters and pro-slavery Border Ruffian elements, that took place in the Kansas Territory and the neighboring towns of Missouri between 1854 and 1861. At the heart of the conflict was the question of whether Kansas would enter the Union as a free state or slave state.

Abolitionist John Brown of Bleeding Kansas fame/infamy, was born on this day in 1800
Abolitionist John Brown was born 214 years ago today-May 9, 1800. He is best known for his October 1859 raid on the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), which he intended to initiate a violent uprising against slavery. Brown also led small groups of anti-slavery volunteers in 1856 during the violent "Bleeding Kansas" conflict between pro- and anti-slavery settlers in that western territory. Brown was hanged for the Harpers Ferry raid and supposedly said shortly before his death that "I believe the crimes of this guilty land will not be purged away but with blood." The Civil War began just 16 months after Brown's execution. While planning the Harpers Ferry raid, Brown lived for a time in Hudson (Summit County), Ohio. His state senator during this period was a young James A. Garfield, who, like most of his constituents, also had strong anti-slavery beliefs. On December 2, 1859-the day Brown was executed-Garfield wrote in his diary: "A dark day for our country. John Brown is ...

Today in the WBTS, January 29th 1861 Kansas is admitted to the Union as free state. It was the 34th state to enter the Union. The struggle between pro- and anti-slave forces in Kansas was a major factor in the eruption of the Civil War. In 1854, Kansas and Nebraska were organized as territories with popular sovereignty (popular vote) to decide the issue of slavery. There was really no debate over the issue in Nebraska, as the territory was filled with settlers from the Midwest, where there was no slavery. In Kansas, the situation was much different. Although most of the settlers were anti-slave or abolitionists, there were many pro-slave Missourians lurking just over the border. When residents in the territory voted on the issue, many fraudulent votes were cast from Missouri. This triggered the massive violence that earned the area the name "Bleeding Kansas." Both sides committed atrocities, and the fighting over the issue of slavery was a preview of the Civil War. Kansas remained one of the most importan ...
Jayhawk is a mythical bird, a combination of a Blue Jay and a Sparrow Hawk. Although the origins are not clear, it was first known to be used by a wagon train heading west through Kansas.During the"Bleeding Kansas" days the Jayhawk became the name for vigilantes / freedom fighters working to make Kansas a free state. When the Civil War broke out the first regiment of calvary created by Kansas was known as the Jayhawks. Later the term Jayhawk referred to people in the state. When the University of Kansas was created, they chose the name Jayhawk as their mascot.Today a Jayhawk is commonly a made up fictitious bird of shades of blue and red with a yellow beak made just the right size for a Boomer Sooner to shot right out of the tree as he squats on the field to claim victory! Women of the Sooner state often adorn their hats with left over colorful feathers, and the men use the bird legs for toothpicks! No Jayhawk body part is ever left behind. The heads make great antennae mounts for for old cars!

Tariff of Abominations, Dred Scott decision, Comp of 1850, Uncle Tom's Cabin, cotton gin, Bleeding Kansas...really anything can be
You need it! Schoolin' that is K is for Kansas Kansas, situated on the American Great Plains, became the 34th state on January 29, 1861. Its path to statehood was long and bloody: After the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 opened the two territories to settlement and allowed the new settlers to determine whether the states would be admitted to the union as "free" or "slave," North and South competed to send the most settlers into the region. This quickly led to violence, and the territory became known as "Bleeding Kansas." Kansas has long been known as part of America's agricultural heartland, and is home to the major U.S. military installation Fort Leavenworth. In 1954, it became a battleground of the civil rights movement when the landmark Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka case was decided in the Supreme Court, ending the doctrine of "separate but equal" in public schools. Kansas is also known for its contributions to jazz music, barbecue and as the setting of L. Frank Baum's classic children's book The ...
On this day in 1855, border ruffians from Missouri forced the election of a pro-slavery territorial legislature in "Bleeding Kansas".
John Brown (May 9, 1800 – December 2, 1859) was an American abolitionist who believed armed insurrection was the only way to overthrow the institution of slavery in the United States. Brown first gained attention when he led small groups of volunteers during the Bleeding Kansas crisis. Unlike most other Northerners, who advocated peaceful resistance to the pro-slavery faction, Brown believed that peaceful resistance was shown to be ineffective and that the only way to defeat the oppressive system of slavery was through violent insurrection. . . . I believe to have interfered as I have done, . . . in behalf of His despised poor, was not wrong, but right. Now, if it be deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children, and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments, I submit: so let it be done."
No beginnings or endings really, in the truth world. But if you had to choose, just one. . . Douglas wanted a transcontinental railroad. So did Lincoln. A lot of people. Uncle Tom's Cabin struck like lightning flashing, igniting a million campfires, maybe, but the Kansas-Nebraska Act triggered an enduring prairie fire. Finesse the politics. Throw the decision back to the people. Popular sovereignty. True republicanism. And the Fugitive Slave Act. Dred Scott. Pumping oxygen into the flames. A free Nebraska, a slave Kansas. That was the way it was supposed to go. The way it had to go. Senators plunging their daggers into the heart of the country, trying to compel democracy to yield. Speak, hands for me! Bleeding Kansas. Let it bleed. Popular sovereignty must defer to the required outcome. I am constant as the northern star, the brightest light . . . no fellow in the firmament. Guerrilla fighting had been raging across northwestern Missouri and eastern Kansas for a decade by the time he wa ...
I'm speaking at Constitution Hall in Lecompton, Kansas today at 2:00 on Bleeding Kansas. It is open to the public.
Another incredible day filled with limitless possibilities. Excited about officially becoming a mentor to Khalelah Kellem, an eighth grader at J.E.B. Stuart Middle School. I'm en route to the JAX Children's Commission for a two-hour comprehensive and interactive mentoring training provided by the City of Jacksonville as part of the application process. Just an aside - James Ewell Brown Stuart (1833 -1864), was a Confederate cavalry officer whose reports of enemy troop movements were of particular value to the Southern command during the American Civil War. Stuart graduated from West Point in 1854 and served in Texas and Kansas with the U.S. Army, a veteran of the frontier conflicts with Native Americans and the violence of Bleeding Kansas. He participated in the capture of John Brown at Harpers Ferry. After brunch at bb's at 12:30pm and the staged reading of "A Lesson Before Dying" at Theatre Jacksonville at 2pm, we will head over to Intuition Ale Works for EqualityFest. Embrace JAX is producing this fam ...
The notion that an individual right to bear arms guarantees the American people against government tyranny is of course an old one. Given its apparent validation in the Second Amendment of the Constitution itself, it's not surprising that the notion has survived in some way through to the 21st century. Given its defiance of history and common sense, though, what should be surprising is that its survived to remain so widespread. If America experienced a widespread political uprising today, it would bear little resemblance to Lexington and Concord in 1775, with well-disciplined minutemen assembling on the town square to defend liberty against the redcoats. It would more likely be a larger scale reenactment of the "Bleeding Kansas" revolt of 1854 to 1861, when small bands of armed zealots unleashed an orgy of inter-communal violence, unbounded by any laws of war or human decency. There is, we all know, a Second Amendment right to gun ownership. Under our constitutional form of government, the Supreme Court h ...

"Write about manifest destiny" "so the wedges that cause the Civil War were Dred Scott, Kansas-Nebraska act and Bleeding Kansas" 😂
On October 8th, 1869, Franklin Pierce, our 14th U.S. president passed away just a few weeks short of his 65th birthday in New Hampshire. He was considered one of our handsomest presidents however though from the north, he favored the south and was influential with the Kansas-Nebraska situation known as "Bleeding Kansas." He was shunned by the Democrats for reelection favoring James Buchannan instead in 1856. He spent his last years as an alchoholic.
As Kansas Secretary of State and Mitt Romney adviser & birther Kris Kobach considers removing President Obama from the state's ballot, I must reflect...if the time & energy spent on disqualifying an incumbent President were spent on working towards the solutions of real problems and serving the people whom they represent and who pay their salaries...what a different world this would be. This from the same state that prayed for our President's death... maybe it's Bleeding Kansas resurrected. A new low.
To my friends and family in the Kansas City area. Daniel and I will participate in a re-enactment in Ossawatomie, KS on Saturday. The battle is planned for 1 p.m. It is re-enacting an August 30, 1856 battle between John Brown's Free staters or abolitionists and Missouri pro-slavery men. It is part of Bleeding Kansas, when the Civil War truly started (1854-61) and not just on April 12, 1861. All are welcome. The next and last event in the Kansas City area is the weekend of Oct. 13th at Shoal Creek Living History at Hodge Park, west of Liberty.
I love it. Like the mural "Bleeding Kansas" by John Stewart Curry in the Capital building in Topeka. They used it for the album cover on their first album. They needed something as powerful as their music.
Bleeding Kansas was the name given to the violence that occurred in the Kansas territory between 1854-58 when anti- and pro-slavery forces fought for control of the territory. Learn more about this event in American History.
The story of Fort Scott is the story of America growing up. When the fort was established in 1842, the nation was still young and confined largely to the area east of the Mississippi River. Yet within a few years, Fort Scott's soldiers became involved in events that would lead to tremendous spurts of growth and expansion. As the nation developed, tensions over slavery led to the conflict and turmoil of "Bleeding Kansas" and the Civil War. Fort Scott takes you through these years of crisis and beyond to the time when the United States emerged as a united, transcontinental nation.
LECOMPTON - Kristie Letter, a high school English teacher from Erie, Colo., said Wednesday she had heard of the term "Bleeding Kansas" but knew only "the starkest outlines" of what it meant to the nation's history.
Civil War? In 1858 they did not know there would be a Civil War. But we are about as deep into Civil War II as they were in 1858. Bleeding Kansas, Missouri Compromise, and John Brown's Raid...the equivalent of these has already run it's course.

On this day in History in 334 BC The Macedonian army of Alexander the Great defeated Darius III of Persia in the Battle of the Granicus. In 1176 The Hashshashin (Assassins) attempted to murder Saladin near Aleppo. In 1200 King John of England and King Philip II of France signed the Treaty of Le Goulet. In 1807 A grand jury indicted former Vice President of the United States Aaron Burr on a charge of treason. In 1809 On the second and last day of the Battle of Aspern-Essling (near Vienna), Napoleon was repelled by an enemy army for the first time. In 1856 Congressman Preston Brooks of South Carolina beat Senator Charles Sumner with a cane in the hall of the United States Senate for a speech Sumner had made attacking Southerners who sympathized with the pro-slavery violence in Kansas ("Bleeding Kansas") and for attacking his cousin verbally in the same speech. In 1861 Thornsbury Bailey Brown, was the first Union soldier to be killed by a Confederate soldier in the American Civil War. In 1863 Union forces la ...

Jayhawkers is a term that came to prominence just before the American Civil War in Bleeding Kansas, where it was adopted by militant bands affiliated with the free-state cause. These bands, known as "Jayhawkers", were guerrilla fighters who often clashed with pro-slavery groups from Missouri known at the time as "Border Ruffians". After the Civil War, the word "Jayhawker" became synonymous with the people of Kansas.another reason to be proud to be a Jayhawk!
