Historical Information

The 2nd Kansas Cavalry was initially organized as the 12th Kansas Infantry at Kansas City, Kansas, in the fall of 1861. At Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, the designation changed to the 9th Kansas Infantry on February 4, 1862, and in March 1862, it became the 2nd Kansas Cavalry. The regiment served throughout the war in the frontier and border areas of Kansas, Missouri, the Cherokee Nation, and Arkansas. The unit participated in most of the major battles in Arkansas, from Cane Hill and Prairie Grove in the fall of 1862, through Poison Spring and Jenkins Ferry in the spring of 1864.
