We are pleased to present here the text from the 1910 book, Indian Raids in Lincoln County, Kansas, 1864 and 1869. Our thanks go to Joan Stevenson for the hours spent in transcribing this book, a vivid account of the struggles between Native Americans and in-coming settlers in north central Kansas.

This book is a resource for historians as well as genealogists and we encourage you to take the time to read it not only to get an understanding of the events that transpired in Lincoln County at the time of its settlement but also to get an idea of how these violent encounters were remembered and commemorated about 30 years later.
The author, Christian Bernhardt, presents a well researched record of these early days of Kansas relying on official documents, letters and personal accounts available to him. The language and description of events is at times blunt and unsettling, and the presentation naturally reflects the views of the settlers, many of whom were still living at the time of the book's publication.
A biography of Christian Bernhardt, supplied by his great great granddaughter, Sandy Foulke, can be found on the Lincoln County Biograrphy page.
