Bleeding Kansas - Jake Brice & Rachel Willard-Herr - Tara's Office

Could you imagine fighting with your neighbor to the point of you killing them or vise versa. A time period between 1854-1858 where Missouri and Kansas were fighting over whether or not that territory would be free and slaved country. Instead of working this out over talking or having a vote, they turned to physical fighting. There was bloodshed and in total there was over 50+ live lost. There were two main leaders, on from Kansas and another from Missouri. John Brown was the leader from Kansas who was representing the abolitionists or the anti-slavery group. From Missouri, William Quantrill was representing the slave owner who wanted to keep slavery. In the end Kansas or the abolitionists won the fight. This fight tore the nation apart. It made these neighbors very hostile to each other and people did not forget it because there family member died.
