Territorial Kansas Online

This site focuses on the turbulent times of Kansas. Here you will find hundreds of personal letters, diaries, photos, and maps that concentrate on that period in the area's history known as "Bleeding Kansas." This site offers scans of original documents from the time people from the east began to arrive and settle there and focuses on that period prior to the Civil War when there was a fierce debate over slavery. This is another of those hidden "free" gems found on the Internet.
