Woah! Calm Down Kansas

Sad story during the 1850s

How It Began

Settlers in Kansas were mostly peaceful farmers, but the others were people who moved to Kansas to oppose the decision on weather or not it should be a free or slave state. People from both the north and south came to Kansas to "help" make the choice but it ended with the north and south fighting with Kansas settlers stuck in the middle

Authors feelings towards these current events

I think this is insane that these people from the north and the south hurry down so quickly to help decide the decision and end up getting in a huge fight while the people of Kansas get stuck in the middle. It's like two parents fighting in the middle of the kid. The little kid just kinds of stands there dazed while the parents argue and tell.
