Humboldt, KS: A Civil War Survivor

Confederates raided and burned the town of Humboldt, Kansas, in September and October 1861, handing the town a blow from which many communities would not have recovered.

The Civil War Monument and History Tour are dedicated to those who founded this community and suffered with it during difficult and trying times, and to those who have kept its spirit strong.

This tour includes twelve stops. Contact information, paper maps, and more available here. Note: the above map also includes Humboldt's Civil War Monument, shown in green.
