Negro Regiment in Kansas

Lane’s Negro Regiment We see by the Wyandot (Kansas) Gazette that the colored regiment left that place on Tuesday morning last for Fort Scott. It is now two months since the officers of this regiment commenced its organization, and it is said of it, that for the short time since its organization, it has made greater proficiency in military drill and tactics than any regiment of whites during the same time.
