Illustrated Weekly
Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Weekly featured the Kansas legislative war on the cover of its March 2, 1893, issue. The war was the result of the 1892 elections when both Republicans and Populists claimed victory. Contests were still being disputed when legislators convened in January 1893. When Populists locked themselves in the hall, Republicans used a sledgehammer to break down the doors. The state supreme court ultimately ruled in favor of the Republicans. From the collections of the Kansas Historical Society, the print was produced for the Kansas Historical Foundation.
