Following the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, Kansas Territory was a national issue that dominated America's press, not to mention three sessions of Congress. Hundreds of thousands of articles and editorials - 4,500 in the New York Herald alone - were published about Bleeding Kansas during those four tummultuous years leading up to the Lecompton Constitution. Craig Miner now offers the first in-depth study of national media coverage devoted to the beleguered territory, unearthing new examples of what Americans were saying about Kansas and showing how those words affected the course of national events.
