In May of 1863 western Jasper County, Missouri was destroyed, including the village of Sherwood, in retaliation for a brutal Confederate guerrilla attack. The Union forces attacked were members of the First Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry Regiment. The events in Jasper County would raise serious national questions about the treatment of black solders in combat and when taken as prisoners
