Nebraska Bill Passed

May 26, 1854

Labeled as Another Triumph of the Slave Power, this notice of the passing of the bill, includes these words:  ” …against an unprecedented demonstration of religious sentiment – against the laws of God and the rights of universal man – in subversion of plighted faith, in utter disregard of the scorn of the world, and for purposes as diabolical as can be conceived of or consummated here on earth – the deed is accomplished. A thousand times accursed by the Union which has made this possible!”
