Topeka Constitution definitions

Britannica Concise

Resolution to establish an antislavery territorial government in Kansas. To counter the proslavery government established after passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, antislavery settlers met in Topeka to draft a constitution that banned slavery. In January 1856 they elected a free-state governor and legislature, which created two governments. Pres. F. Pierce condemned the Topeka document and supported the proslavery government. The U.S. House of Representatives voted to admit Kansas under the Topeka Constitution, but the Senate blocked the move. The unresolved situation led to the conflict known as Bleeding Kansas.
