Bleeding Kansas In 1855, there were more proslavery than antislavery settlers in the Kansas Territory. People from Missouri came and voted illegally filling the legislature with proslavery representatives Antislavery settlers rejected the elected government and decided to take arms against their brethren. John Brown led his men and killed his proslavery neighbors causing a civil war in Kansas. This civil war was called “Bleeding Kansas”
