James Lane ordered James Abbott to gather his brigade and have them in Lecompton by early morning on the following Monday. The order is, perhaps, a response to the results of the early October election of the Territorial Legislature, in which free state men questioned the validity of votes cast by U.S. troops, or to anticipate the meeting of the Lecompton Constitutional Convention that would reconvene on October 20, 1857.

Creator: Lane, James Henry, 1814-1866
