Photograph, Andrew Horatio Reeder
Authors: No authors specified.

A portrait of Andrew Horatio Reeder taken in May, 1856, as he escaped from Kansas disguised as a woodchopper. The photograph was taken in Chicago, IL. He was appointed to Territorial Governor June 29, 1854, took the oath July 7; arrived in Kansas October 7, 1854;and served to April 17, 1855; June 23 to August 16, 1855. In 1854, Reeder called for an election to choose a delegate to Congress. On election day, Missourians came in great numbers and, voting illegally, elected a proslavery candidate. This same situation occurred in March, 1855, when an election was called to form a legislature. Early in 1856, Lecompton was designated the territorial capital. Sheriff Samuel Jones, a strong proslaveryite, arrested several free-staters in Lawrence. Several people for whom he was looking escaped including Reeder, who left Kansas dressed as a woodchopper.
