Charles Robinson to Sara Robinson

Charles Robinson to Sara Robinson
Creator: Robinson, Charles, 1818-1894
Date: January 6, 1859
From Washington, D.C., Charles Robinson wrote his wife, Sara, back home in Lawrence, Kansas Territory, regarding land and railroad issues that he was working on behalf of in the capital. Robinson briefly addresses issues having to do with Indian land disputes, but focuses even more on the competition for railroads being fought out in Washington between Lawrence, Leavenworth, and Kansas City. ". . . Lawrence must fight its own battles . . . . I hope to be able to make Lawrence a point on both roads before we get through." [For more information on this battle over railroads, see I. E. Quastler, "Charting a Course: Lawrence, Kansas, and Its Railroad Strategy, 1854-1872," Kansas History 18 (Spring 1995): 18-33. For a time, civic and business leaders sought to make Lawrence the regional rail center with an aggressive promotion's plan, but they ultimately, and perhaps inevitably, lost the prize to Kansas City; this piece is largely drawn from the author's 1979 book-length study, "The Railroads of Lawrence."]

Isaac McCoy became a Baptist minister and missionary to the Indians, and Christiana spent 30 years aiding her husband in his work. In 1830, McCoy came to Kansas where he established a series of Baptist missions throughout the new Indian Territory. In 1832, after a few months at the home of his son-in-law, Dr. Johnston Lykins, he patented a tract of land and built a home, called "Locust", which is the site of St. Luke's Hospital. Her last home was built for her by her son, John Calvin McCoy, on Pearl Street in the "new Town of Kansas" (Kansas City), overlooking the Missouri River. Christiana died in 1851 and is buried in the Union Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri.

Cyrus Leland, Jr. to Mother and other family members

Cyrus Leland, Jr. to Mother and other family members
Creator: Leland, Cyrus, 1841-1917
Date: August 3, 1862-January 24, 1864
These letters were selected from a larger group of Civil War letters written by Cyrus Leland, Jr. primarily to his mother but to other family members also. Leland served in the 4th Kansas and later the10th Kansas Infantry, after the 3rd and 4th Kansas were consolidated to form the 10th. Many of the letters concern his efforts to be appointed as an aide-de-camp to General Thomas Ewing, Jr. Leland writes letters from Kansas City, Leavenworth, St. Louis, Rolla, and other places the regiment went. In a letter from Kansas City, Missouri, dated June 29, 1863, he asks his mother to send him $25 and to make him two white shirts. He also writes that he is staying at the Union House, along with some female prisoners. On stationery printed with "Headquarters District of the Border," he writes that General Schofield "has issued an order preventing the military of either Missouri or Kansas from crossing the state line without permission." A short letter written in pencil on October 12, 1863, about a military engagement near Boonville, MO, presents a contrast of letters written in the field to those written at Headquarters. Another letter written October 18, 1863, from "Camp near Carthage, MO, describes the capture of thirty Confederate troops. The letter written November 14th, 1863, describes an incident at a dance near Neosho, MO, that end with shooting. Leland ejected a soldier from "Blunts scouts" that was "a little more noisy than the rest" but when the soldier returned to Fort Scott, he told people he had been bushwhacked. Leland was from Troy, Doniphan County, KS. After the war, he served several terms in the Kansas House of Representatives. A complete transcript of the letters is available by clicking on Text Version below.
