From the author's acknowledgements: "The narrative printed within these pages has served as an opportunity to praise the heroic men and women - particularly those that live in the Wakarusa Valley - who, during the brief period of Douglas County's early history, showed extraordinary courage and commitment. Their spirit and determination during that tumultuous time never dimmed, because they knew that their freedom was worth the ultimate sacrifice. I am indebted to the many people who encouraged me to record the information that I have acquired over the past twenty-five years, especially information that relates to activity associated with the Underground Railroad. . . . I am particularly indebted to Dr. Richard Sheridan, who wrote the Preface on Slavery, and to Dr. Herschel Stroud, who wrote passionately about the 1st Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry Regiment."
