Item Description
  Signatures of Indian Widows requesting exclusion from Wyandotte
Author: Armstrong, Lucy B.
Date: ca. 1859

This document, which carries the signature of Lucy Armstrong and other widowed Indians, supplements their request to the Kansas Territorial Legislature to amend the Act of Incorporation of Wyandotte city. The women wished to have their private lands excluded from the city, maintaining that they were not consulted about being included, their lands were remote, and the city taxes too high for them to pay.
