Legislature. Resolutions of N.H. in relation to violence in Kansas Territory, 1857 [Maine doc.]
On January 24, 1857, the Governor passed on several resolutions sent to him by the Governor of New Hampshire. Their Legislature had strong words
about the violence in Kansas that prevented the citizens from setting up a government of their choosing. They suggested that the President did not do
nearly enough to control the situation. and alluded to the caning of Senator Sumner by Senator Brooks as an example of what the world had come to. The
resolutions of Arkansas in favor of repealing the Missouri Compromise and railing at Ohio for supporting fugitive slaves were included so the
Legislature could argue against them. New Hampshire resolved that slavery should be excluded from Kansas and Nebraska. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of
title originally held by the Library of Congress).
