These two letters from Mary Savage detail her experience with Quantrill's raid on Lawrence, Kansas. Mary describes seeing homes and businesses burning and women trying to put the fires out, hiding in nearby fields so not to be seen by Quantrill's men, to taking care of the wounded and dead after the raiders left.

Creator: Savage, Mary
Date: October 1863-November 1863
