Dr. Adams will use the 1870 census for Forts Dodge and Larned, as well as other frontier military records, to compare similiarities and differences in the post-Civil War military experience of enlisted soldiers. Although these men experienced some of the same conditions based on military service, their could also be significant differences based on a soldier's race. Kevin Adams is a specialist in the study of War & Society in American history who is most known for his 2009 study of the post-Civil War frontier army, Class and Race in the Frontier Army: Military Life in the West, 1870-1890. A native of California's Central Valley, Adams is currently an Associate Professor of History at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, where he teaches a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses.
