Artifact Collection from the Green Site, 14RY33

Artifact Collection from the Green Site, 14RY33
Date: 1500 BCE-1500 CE
This collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1880 by Governor Nehemiah Green (1837-1890). The artifacts are likely from a site called 14RY33 as the donation records state they are from the Green site and 14RY33 was on property once owned by Governor Green. The small collection includes two vessel rims, two body sherds, and a large piece of daub (clay typically used to coat a structure which retains impressions of surrounding material). A single groundstone abrader, used for smoothing softer material, two scrapers and a knife or biface were also donated. Finally, seven projectile points, ranging in style from large dart points to a small notched arrow point were included. This collection reveals a site that was occupied periodically from the late Archaic to the Middle Ceramic periods. It may have had at least one structure and activities included cooking, hide processing and hunting.

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.
