        Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) and Resource Materials

        This resource contains a facsimile of the 1854 Kansas-Nebraska Act, which repealed the Missouri Compromise and reopened the issues of slavery in the western territories. The Act allowed the settlers of the Kansas and Nebraska territories to determine the legality of slavery for themselves. This served to deepen sectional tensions.

        This resource can be found on the Our Documents website.
