The intent of this blog is to pay tribute to the men of the 2nd Kansas Militia of Shawnee County for the role they played in repelling the Confederate raid of Missouri in October of 1864. To find out their story, begin by reading the oldest post first.

A virtual Cemetery has been created on the Find A Grave website for the known graves of the men of the 2nd Kansas Militia. I will continue to search for the final resting places of the men whose gravesites haven't been located in an attempt to list as many men of the 2nd KSM as possible.
