Lecompton Tour

With Heartland Travel LLC.

Step back in time to 1850s Territorial Kansas! Explore how Kansas became a state and the fight that ensued. When the Kansas-Nebraska Act was signed on May 30th, 1854, a whole new can of worms was opened. The US government decided to let popular sovereignty rein supreme by letting Kansas vote and decide whether or not they would enter the United States as a free or slave state. Lecompton is the best example to see this fight played out. We will also stop over to Lawrence, which was sacked in 1856 and burned in 1863, both due to the slavery issue.
