A Northern Democratic attack on President Buchanan and the southern wing of the Democratic Party. The Democracy had fractured over Kansas's pro-slavery Lecompton Constitution, which had passed as the result of fraud, violence, and intimidation. Lecompton made a mockery of Democrats' purported devotion to Popular Sovereignty; Northern Democrats, allied with Stephen A. Douglas, broke with Buchanan when Buchanan supported Lecompton. The struggle cost Douglas his Chair of the Committee on Territories, made him a hero in the North, and paved the way for the Party's final disruption in 1860.
