Territorial - Civil War Years


The Gale Kansas History database covers years 1854-1865, so is a great way to learn something new about our state's early history.  Find a wide variety of documents: personal narratives, political speeches (including many in Washington on the Kansas free/slave state issue), songs, even the state's first geological survey. A subjects list is available for easy browsing, or input your own search topic.
