George W. Brown

GEORGE W. BROWN was one of the earlier free-state men who suffered materially in defense of the cause. On may 21, 1856, the offices of his Herald of Freedom and the Kansas Free State (Miller & Elliott), as well as the Eldridge House and a number of stores were sacked and destroyed. The notorious Sheriff Brown was the leader of the pro-slavery mob.
