Illustrations from Harper's Weekly magazine depicting Exodusters. As life in the South worsened for Blacks after the Civil War, many left for more promising lands.

These three illustrations are captioned, "The Colored Exodus - - Scenes at Topeka, Kansas - - From Sketches by H. Worrall." Henry Worrall was an early Kansas artist.

Wiley Taylor newspaper article

Wiley Taylor newspaper article
Creator: Louisville Herald
Date: 1915
These two Louisville Herald newspaper pages from June 20, 1915 give an account of the American Association baseball game contested the day before between the Louisville (KY) Colonels and the Cleveland Spiders. The news account was saved as a keepsake by one of the Louisville players--Wiley Taylor, a right-handed pitcher from Louisville, Kansas. The article, "Spiders Make Hits Count While Ezra's Boys Do Opposite," compliments Taylor's hitting performance, although the Colonels lost the game. He had entered the game as a reliever, and went two-for-four at the plate, scoring one run. Taylor played professional baseball for several years, starting with the Ellsworth, Kansas, minor league team in 1910. Between 1911 and 1914, he pitched in 27 major league games, including three games each with the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox, and the remainder with the St. Louis Browns. His major league record was 2-10, with an ERA of 4.10. In the minor leagues, Taylor played not only for Louisville and Ellsworth, but also for teams in Austin, Lincoln (NE), Jersey City, Nashville, Salina, and Topeka. After his baseball career, Taylor remained in Pottawatomie County, where he farmed and served four terms as the county sheriff (1925-28 and 1945-48). Late in life, he also ran a service station and recreation parlor in Westmoreland. Wiley Taylor died at the age of 65 in 1954.
