Originally published as an almost weekly column in the "Western Home Journal," Lawrence, Kansas, beginning June 23, 1870, "Recollections of 1854" were written by Joseph Savage. Savage was born in Hartford, Vermont, on July 28, 1823, and came to Kansas Territory with the New England Emigrant Aid Company's second party. The "Recollections" provide a detailed and personal account of Savage's journey from Boston to Kansas Territory, and the first few months of settlement in Lawrence. The original Savage narrative which appeared in twelve installments (June 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21, 28, August 4, 11, 18, September 8, 22, 29, 1870) has been faithfully transcribed in its entirety by Shelley Hickman Clark, University of Kansas Law School. This transcription, included as Text Version below, includes corrections to the text that are not included in the 2004 Kansas History publication.
