Subject

Warriors at White Rock: White Rock Township and White Rock City, Republic County, Kansas, 1862-1926

Description

The White Rock Valley in Republic County saw Indian violence from both the Cheyenne and the Pawnee. This essay traces the founding of the town of White Rock City and its decline during the railroad years. The vital early years of the town are connected intimately to many Native American stories and records. The author discusses settler perceptions that they eventually "outlasted the Indians."
