Item Description
  Pamphlet, "The Coming Struggle: or, Shall Kansas Be a Free or Slave State?"
Author: No authors specified.
Date: 1856

This pamphlet, authored anonymously by "One of the People" directs the question "Slavery or Liberty?" primarily to a Northern audience. The context of the argument supports Kansas achieving status as a free state, though it pointedly states that "the Free States desire not to control the internal arrangements of their sister States; but while they are willing that State rights should be respected, they will not submit to the nationalization of Slavery".
