FIRST KANSAS COLORED VOLUNTEERS

Historian Jim Denny examines the Battle of Island Mound, the first Civil War battle in which soldiers of the First Kansas Colored Volunteers engaged in combat and proved their courage, in a program at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, September 12, at the Kansas City MO Central Library, 14 W. 10th Street. This event is keyed to the grand opening on October 27, 2012, of the new Battle of Island Mound State Historic Site near Butler, Missouri.

Now retired, Denny was a historian for 33 years with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and continues to lecture and write about many aspects of local history.
