Muster Roll, Kansas Volunteers for the Protection of the Ballot Box, Leavenworth County
Date: 1857
The Kansas Volunteers for the Protection of the Ballott Box were free state supporters who were determined to see that fair elections were held in Kansas. James Lane was appointed to organize companies throughout the territory. General Order No. 1 (which may be found on this web site) included instructions for listing the members of each company. This muster roll was prepared as a result of that order. This company was recruited in Leavenworth County from Delaware City. The captain was A. Cutter. The muster roll identified the officers and enlisted men, their age, birthplace, location from which they came to Kansas, and their Kansas residence. [The ages of company members range from eighteen to fifty-four.]
