Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Daniel Read Anthony (August 22, 1824 - November 12, 1904) was an American publisher and abolitionist. Considered colorful and controversial, he published the Leavenworth Times in Leavenworth, Kansas, as well as other newspapers in the area. Anthony was born in Adams, Massachusetts, one of eight children born to Daniel Anthony and Lucy Read. His older sister was Susan B. Anthony. Anthony first came to Kansas in 1854 as part of the Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Company to fight against the extension of slavery to the Kansas Territory. He settled in Leavenworth in 1857 where he founded the Leavenworth Conservative newspaper in 1861. He was also named the town postmaster. Leavenworth at the time was the end of the telegraph line and in 1861 he rode by horseback to Lawrence, Kansas to inform the territorial legislature of the approval of statehood for Kansas. In 1861, R.C. Satterlee of the Kansas Herald accused Anthony of being a coward. They met on the street and exchanged gunfire with Satterlee being killed.show more
