This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. With the noteworthy motto "We Join Ourselves to No Party That Does Not Carry The Flag, and Keep Step to the Music of the Union," The Smoky Hill and Republican Union clearly expressed its antislavery sentiment. Published in Junction City, Kansas, the seat of Davis (now Geary) County in the northeast part of the state, the newspaper's title refers to the two rivers, the Smoky Hill and the Republican, that converge in the city. At the time it was the westernmost newspaper in Kansas. The Smoky Hill and Republican Union maintained a four-page, six-column folio sheet format throughout its tenure. It was published each Saturday except for a one-month suspension from December 26, 1861, until January 30, 1862, when there was a change in ownership.

Creator: Kingsbury, George W., 1837-1925
