Samuel Reader's diary, volume 5

Posted by Michael Church (Digital Projects Coordinator) on Jun 3, 2013

Volume 5 of Samuel Reader's diary is now fully transcribed and keyword searchable. See Samuel Reader's diary on Kansas Memory.

This volume of Samuel James Reader's diary covers most of 1860-1864. The volume begins with his family history and a description of his land claim and includes many color illustrations. Reader refers to this volume as his "private journal and a kind of autobiography." Reader lived in Indianola, Kansas in Shawnee County (formerly Jackson County). The preceding volume four was destroyed by fire.
