Creator: Kansas. Adjutant General's Office
Date: 1869

New Scandinavia settlers to Governor Nehemiah Green

New Scandinavia settlers to Governor Nehemiah Green
Creator: New Scandinavia (Republic County) Settlers
Date: December 4, 1868
Settlers of the New Scandinavia settlement, Kansas, petition Governor Nehemiah Green of Topeka for protection from possible Indian depredations. The petitioners request a company of fifty soldiers to protect the settlement. Several hundred additional settlers were expected the following Spring. The petitioners are concerned that reports of Indian depredations may keep additional settlers away. John Breaton served as immigration agent for the colony. The Scandinavian Agricultural Society founded New Scandinavia in 1867 and the town reincorporated as Scandia in 1879. The advancing line of white settlement continued to aggravate relations with Indians of the region. Peace treaties, like the meeting at present Medicine Lodge (Barber County) in October of 1867, demonstrated that polite negotiations were possible but failed to resolve the conflicts.
