Best Answer

In May 1856 a proslavery grand jury in Kansas charged antislavery leaders of treason, about eight hundred men rode to Lawrence,Kansas to arrest the antislavery leaders but they had fled. The proslavery men were so furious by the fleeing of the antislavery leaders that they looted and set fire to buildings, destroyed presses that were used to print antislavery newspapers, and even killed one man.
