George W. Brown was one of the earlier freestate 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.
