About this title


With conflict beginning upon the territory's bid for statehood and continuing until the end of the Civil War, "Bleeding Kansas" was the battleground for local militias and guerrilla fighters.

From the Back Cover:

Even before the official start of the Civil War in 1861, Kansas saw violent fighting between pro- and antislavery factions, bushwhackers and Jayhawkers respectively, during the territory's bid for statehood. After war was declared, "Bleeding Kansas" became the battleground of local militias and guerrilla fighters. In Civil War in Kansas, historian Roy Bird examines the personalities involved in this violent era, including William Clarke Quantrill, Jim Lane, "Red Leg" Charles Jennison, and Gen. James Blunt.
Born in Herington, Kansas, Roy Bird graduated from Kansas State University with a bachelor's and master's degree in history and received his master's in library science from Emporia State University. Bird currently works for the Kansas State Library and is an adjunct professor at Washburn University. He is also a regular contributor to America's Civil War and Military History and has his own monthly book-review column in Kansas Libraries. Bird lives with his wife and three children on a farm near Auburn, Kansas.
