Missouri Pro-Slavery Convention

August 10, 1855

Under the Refuge of Oppression column, is an account of this three-day meeting of pro-slavery advocates.  It lists ten resolutions passed, including one which recommends retaliation to the passage of nullification laws in Mass. and other states.  It asks for legal measures for “discrimination against the sale of the productions, manufactures, goods and merchandise”of those states.
