Kansas Territory became the center of attention when it opened for settlement in 1854. When it became a state it would alter the balance of power between North and South. One group of South Carolinians formed an armed force in Kansas named the Palmetto Guards. Their red flag had a single white star and the words "South Carolina" on one side and "Southern Rights" on the other. They carried this flag into battle  when a proslavery force attacked Lawrence on May 21, 1856.
