The Nebraska-Kansas Act of 1854( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nebraska-Kansas Act of 1854 turns upside down the traditional way of thinking about one of the most important laws ever passed in American history. The act that created Nebraska and Kansas also, in effect, abolished the Missouri Compromise, which had prohibited slavery in the region since 1820. This bow to local control outraged the nation and led to vicious confrontations, including Kansas' subsequent mini-civil war. At the 150th anniversary of the Kansas-Nebraska Act these scholars reexamine the political, social, and personal contexts of this act and its effect on the course of American history

Standing Bear's Footsteps( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1877, the Ponca people were exiled from their Nebraska homeland to Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. To honor his dying son's last wish to be buried in his homeland, Chief Standing Bear set off on a grueling, six-hundred-mile journey home. Captured en-route, Standing Bear sued a famous U.S. army general for his freedom-- choosing to fight injustice not with weapons, but with words. The Chief stood before the court to prove that an Indian was a person under the law. The story quickly made newspaper headlines-- attracting powerful allies, as well as enemies. Stirring a nation's conscience and challenging the meaning of freedom, Standing Bear's Footsteps chronicles an Indian chief's odyssey, ending in a battle for civil rights unlike any other in American history."
