This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Kanzas News was established on June 6, 1857, in the then brand new town of Emporia by Preston Bierce Plumb (1837-1891), who had arrived in the Kansas Territory in late 1856 intent on aiding the free-state cause. Plumb became a permanent and prominent citizen of Emporia, and the Kansas News became a voice of the free-state movement in the territory, as well as being Emporia's only newspaper for its first twelve years.

Date: June 6, 1857-August 6, 1859
