Citizens Stirred By Suffering in Kansas

Event date: Jun 14, 1856

Meetings of those who sympathize with the suffering Free State men and women of Kansas, have been held in Putney, Dummerston, West Brattleboro, and we believe in other towns and villages during the present week. The mass of our citizens were never before so stirred in their innermost hearts as they are now moved by the recent aggressions of Slavery. Their blood fairly boils, and the reports of each succeeding day only increases the indignation they feel. We think that with but little difficulty a large company of men could be raised in this county for the defence of freedom in Kansas.
