16568 The Border Ruffian Code in Kansas. 8vo, no
cover, 16pp. with sewn spine. This pamphlet
explains the various codes of law that were present
in Kansas at the time, with chapters on life people
had to deal with in Kansas: from slavery, to
attorneys, jurors and other issues. The pamphlet
includes articles dated from 1856. Last page is a
map showing free and slave states, and "coveted
territories," all apparently coveted by
slave-owning states.  $125
