Adair-Brown cabin, Osawatomie, Kansas

Adair-Brown cabin, Osawatomie, Kansas
Date: Between 1880 and 1912
This illustration shows the Adair-Brown cabin in Osawatomie, Kansas. The structure, built around 1854 by Samuel Glenn, was sold in 1855 to John Brown's brother-in-law Samuel Lyle Adair.

In 1912, the structure was moved to the highest point in the John Brown Memorial Park which is also the site of the "Battle of Osawatomie" where John Brown and thirty free-state defenders fought in 1856 against 250 pro-slavery militia. A stone pavilion was built in 1928 to protect the cabin's exterior. The state legislature appointed the Kansas Historical Society to maintain the site. In 1971, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In April of 1861 the threat of a civil war prompted Marmaduke to resign his post from the United States Army. This departure allowed him to join the Confederate army and accept the commission of colonel of the First Missouri Rifles of the Missouri State Guard. He was promoted to colonel, on January 1, 1862, of the Third Confederate Infantry and on November 15, 1862, to brigadier general. Marmaduke led troops through the trans-Mississippi theater into a number of battles that included: Prairie Grove, Cape Girardeau, and the Red River Campaign. Marmaduke also joined Sterling Price for the final raid into Missouri. At the Battle of Mine Creek, on October 25,1864, Marmaduke and his men attempted to hold back Union forces but were instead captured while retreating. He spent the rest of the war in prison at Fort Warren, Massachusetts. On March 18, 1865 Marmaduke was promoted to major general, the last promotion issued by the Confederate army. In 1884 Marmaduke made a bid for governor and became the first ex-Confederate elected to a major political office in Missouri.
