Date: July 21, 1855

Kansas pioneer, extra

Kansas pioneer, extra
Date: January 18, 1856
This newspaper clipping from the Kansas Pioneer, published in the territory city of Kickapoo near Leavenworth, Kansas, describes the violence and tension between pro-slavery and free state forces during the Bleeding Kansas era. The article goes on to encourage pro-slavery supporters to take up arms against Abolitionists. The Extra indicated the messenger came from Eastin and that pro-slavery men were leaving for Eastin. It is not clear if the paper meant the city of Easton in Leavenworth County, or if it was referring to Lucien Eastin, editor of the Kansas Weekly Herald, legislator and Brigadier General in the Kansas Militia. The language in the Extra is inflammatory.

William Stanley to John A. Halderman

William Stanley to John A. Halderman
Creator: Stanley, William
Date: January 12, 1858
Shortly after John Halderman left Leavenworth, Kansas Territory, for a trip east (Washington, D. C., it is nearly certain), William Stanley writes him from Leavenworth regarding some "excitement" that had occurred there the very day Halderman left. Many were fearful of "attack" and thus the alarms were "sounded. . . . Hundreds of free state men were soon in arms, and the proslavery party exhibited more of apprehension than I have ever witnessed before." He mentions proslavery men leaving for Shawnee, the fact that many free-state men had recently been driven out of nearby Kickapoo, Kansas Territory, that John Calhoun was given a military escort to Lecompton, and Stanley's confidence that the [Lecompton] constitution would pass the Congress.
