The troubles in Kansas...

Item # 674140

April 30, 1856

BANNER OF LIBERTY, Middletown, New York, April 30, 1856 

* Bleeding Kansas

A great issue if only because of the very patriotic masthead, featuring an eagle with the US. flag in its talons.
Inside has over a full column on the troubling situation in Kansas, headed: "The Kansas Troubles not so Big as They Seem--How & Why They are Magnified..." with more. One bit notes: "...Much of the Kansas trouble occurs, in my humble opinion, from newspaper scribblers not fully understanding the country or people they attempt to describe...".
Eight pages, 10 1/2 by 15 inches, very nice condition.
