Usage examples of "osawatomie".

Brown and his sons were living at Osawatomie, some thirty miles south of Lawrence.

The process of organization and drill thereupon began, and when the Wakarusa War occurred early in December, 1855, John Brown was on hand with a small company from Osawatomie to assist in the defense of Lawrence.

John's company soon afterwards disbanded, and also the Osawatomie men.

John Brown, Junior, captain of the Osawatomie Rifles, was a political prisoner at Topeka.

Apart from an encounter of opposing forces near Osawatomie in which he and his band were engaged, Brown took no share in the open fighting between the organized companies of opposing forces, and his part in the irregular guerrilla warfare of the period is uncertain.
