"Kansas Pre-War Army"
The Arthur William (A.W.) Cunningham collection contains a brief typewritten history of pre-Civil War Kansas, as well as muster rolls for the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Regiments of the Kansas territorial militia in 1855-1856. The collection also mentions the Wakarusa War, a conflict between pro-slavery and Free State militias that occurred near Lawrence, Kansas between November 21 and December 8, 1855. A.W. Cunningham compiled this collection after discovering the records of W.J.R. Blackman, Captain of Company A of the First Regiment.
