James Montgomery: Abolitionist Warrior
James Montgomery, a key player in the Kansas Territory free-state movement, went on to command Union troops during the Civil War. With the assistance of Harriet Tubman, African American troops under the command of Montgomery took part in the 1863 Combahee River raid, which freed almost 800 slaves from South Carolina plantations. While much of his Civil War service lay in the South, Montgomery also commanded Kansas troops in Kansas and Missouri in 1861-62 and the 1864 Battle of Westport. Author Robert C. Conner examines the life and actions of James Montgomery which helped contribute to the abolition of slavery.
