These letters are from various residents of Kansas regarding Quantrill Raid claims to Kansas Governor John Martin. The individuals requested claims since the raids either wounded them or damaged their property. The name of William Clarke Quantrill was already known before he led his band of guerillas in a deadly raid on Lawrence, Kansas, August 21, 1863. Claiming to fight for the confederacy, Quantrill organized a band in December 1861. Quantrill's raid also attacked Olathe, Kansas in 1862.
