Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
31-page pamphlet plus one advertising page. Printed in the style of legislative bills. The speaker describes the crime against Kansas: "It is the rape of a virgin territory, compelling it to the hateful embrace of slavery; and it may be clearly traced to a depraved longing for a new slave State, the hideous offspring of such a crime, in the hope of adding to the power of slavery in the national government". ".here in our republic, force, aye, sir, FORCE -- has been openly employed in compelling Kansas to the pollution of slavery, all the the sake of political power". "My task will be divided under three different heads; first, The Crime Against Kansas, in its origin and extent; secondly, The Apologies for the Crime; and thirdly, The True Remedy.".
