Donald C. Reimer’s “Bleeding Kansas And The American Civil War” is out now on major online retailers

The American Civil War is a major event in America’s history that resulted in the abolition of slavery in the United States of America and determined what country it would be. The events that led to this battle inspired Donald C. Reimer’s book, Bleeding Kansas And The American Civil War, published by Author Reputation Press.

At the beginning of the book, readers are introduced to the U.S. Presidential Elections of 1852 and the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854, which allowed settlers, not Congress, to determine by popular vote if they wanted to be admitted into the United States as a Free State or a Slave State.

Then emigrants began to move from Midwestern States, Northern States, and Southern States to claim parcels of lands in the Kansas Territory. This led to the battle between two sides of the conflict and many other events that led to the Civil War.

Abolitionist John Brown, his militants, and his sons, started the violent murders in the Kansas Territory and raided the neighboring State of Missouri, where he freed 11 slaves, murdered a slave owner, and stole several ox, wagons, supplies, and valuables. Eventually, both the Free-State and Pro-Slavery newspapers across the country condemned him in strongest terms. Also, the President of the United States and the Governor of Missouri both offered a combined reward of $3,250 for the capture of Brown.

The book also makes mention of all major battles during the Civil War in Kansas. Finally, it provides a summary of the places to stay and places to visit in Kansas by County, including battlefields, historical sites, museums, and cemeteries.
