1856 The New Hampshire Statesman and State Journal - William Henry Harrison


An original edition of The New Hampshire Independent Democrat from July 10, 1856 with articles, a presidential advertisement, and an accounting of the rally for Charles C. Fremont, a Republican - for the Presidency of the United States. He was running against James Buchanan, a Democrat, and Millard Fillmore, of the American (Know-Nothing) party. Fremont decried the expansion of slavery into the free territory of Kansas. Buchanan, the Democrat, warned of the Republican party's extremism on the subject of slavery in Kansas and of the possibility of a Civil War on this question of slavery.

In the same paper, is an extensive set of articles on the massacre in Kansas with graphic verbal depictions of the violence and terror that was surrounding the right of Kansas to enter the union as a slave-free state.

This is an easy to read and very interesting newspaper with information on some of the situations that eventually led to the American Civil War.
