This is a 10 minute video interview recorded on January 14, 2012, at the Trapper’s Rendezvous campout west of Newton, Kansas. This historian shares some history about Kansas in the U.S. Civil War. He provided background about the 7th Regiment Kansas Volunteer Cavalry, the Bushwhackers, Jayhawkers, Quantrill’s Raiders and the scorched earth tactics which eventually were used by Sherman‘s troops in the south at the close of the U.S. Civil War.

More photos from the 2012 Trapper’s Rendezvous are available in this Flickr set.
