Barnes was secretary of the New York State Kansas Committee in 1856-1857. Brown was an abolitionist and one of the free-state leaders. He came to Kansas Territory in 1855 and left in 1859 but in that time, he was involved in several skirmishes with proslavery factions. Brown's acts of violence against proslavery people made him a legendary figure by the time he left Kansas Territory.
