A petition on Negro suffrage

A petition on Negro suffrage
Date: 1867
This petition by an unknown group of Kansas residents asks the state legislature to support suffrage for black males. The petitioners support removing the word "white" from articles five and eight of the state constitution. At that time the Kansas constitution limited suffrage to white males. The petition outlines six reasons why suffrage should be extended to black males. In 1867, the state legislature approved an amendment supporting black male suffrage but white male voters defeated the amendment in a public referendum. Voters also defeated a similar amendment supporting white, female suffrage. These proposed amendments followed the Kansas legislature's ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, which defined who were citizens, including Negroes.

Bronze Napoleon III medal

Bronze Napoleon III medal
Creator: Ponscarme, Hubert
Date: 1867
Bronze Napoleon III medal awarded to the State of Kansas at the 1867 Paris International Exposition. The front depicts the bust of Napoleon III, President and Emperor of France from 1848 to 1870. The reverse side reads, "Exposition Universelle De MDCCCLXVIII a Paris, Recompenses, Etat Du Kansas," which translates to "Universal Exposition of 1867 in Paris, Rewards, State of Kansas." The Paris Exhibition was held at the behest of Napoleon III and brought exhibitors to Paris from throughout the world. Though the reason the state received this medal is currently unknown, the French maintained strong ideological support for John Brown's abolitionist movement in Kansas. Hubert Ponscarme, a French sculptor, was commissioned to design this medal based on his success with a previous Napoleon III medal struck in 1857.
