The Kansas Jayhawkers were a loosely organized group who made constant raids into Missouri on missions to burn, pillage and murder Missourians in an attempt to discourage them from supporting slavery. During the civil war they were absorbed into the Union army as Kansas Redlegs and they continued their raids into Missouri using the authority of the Union. They also continued their terror tactics for a time after the war, still as federal troops.
