Fort Scott soldiers

This photograph of two men on horses at Fort Scott was probably taken between 1863 and 1865. The man in the foreground is Corporal George Henry McCoon, company saddler in the 3rd Wisconsin Cavalry. The photograph shows the Fort Scott stables in the background. Corporal McCoon married in Fort Scott shortly after the Civil War, then relocated to Oregon and later to California. Patron supplied information suggests Ina Riley Wilson, a McCoon descendent, donated the original tintype to the Fort Scott Historical Society prior to 1979 from which KSHS obtained a copy.


Nicodemus, Kansas

This photograph captures the bustling main street in Nicodemus, Graham County, a settlement founded by African Americans in 1877.

The new First Baptist Church was built in 1907 around this church; once the new building was completed, Nicodemus residents demolished the original church.
