Counting the people of the territory

    • 1st Territorial Governor

    • Ordered the 1st Kansas Census

      • Did not count soldiers unless they planned on settling in Kansas

      • Did not count Indians

  • 1st Federal Census

    • 1860

    • 107,209 people

    • 12% of population was foreign born most from British Isles or Germany

    • Only 2 slaves

    • 625 Free African Americans

    • 189 American Indians

    • Only 2 communities were called cities by U.S. government, Leavenworth and Atchison all others were too small

Counting the People of the Territory

How do we know this

  • U.S.. Government has gathered census data since 1790 of the slavery issue

    • Every decade

    • Count people and collect basic data about them

    • Info gathered gives us important demographic characteristics of the population

  • Knowing the number of people and where they live is a crucial part of our government

    • # of Representatives a state has

    • How resources are distributed

      • Ex: Federal funding for Education

  • Tells us where someone comes from

  • What type of work they did

  • When they were born

  • If a child attended school

  • Help to show how communities change over time.

How Do We Know This?

Why did they come

  • Most came for cheap land and economic opportunities of the slavery issue

  • Land could be obtained through the Preemption Act

    • An individual could claim up to 160 acres

    • Obligated to pay $1.25 per acre once a public land survey was complete

  • As towns developed, shares were sold to investors.

    • Some were settlers

    • Others were absentee speculators

    • All investors wanted a profit, although shares were sold for many towns not all grew.

  • Example p.76 Ellen Goodnow and husband brought 200 people to what is current day Manhattan.

    • Goodnow’s were motivated to end slavery, but not all settlers came for a cause

Why Did They Come

Proslavery voices

  • Wanted slavery in Kansas because of the economic opportunities and to preserve the southern way of life.

  • Envisioned a new territory where southern farmers could prosper

Proslavery Voices

Antislavery voices

  • Antislavery forces wanted to take a stand in Kansas Territory
