George Washington Brown, editor of the "Herald of Freedom" newspaper, was one of seven free state leaders arrested on May 14, 1856, on charges of high treason and held prisoner by federal troops near Lecompton, Kansas Territory. Despite his imprisonment, Brown's letter to his mother expresses optimism about Kansas's prospects of becoming a free state.
