- Howard, KS, from Kansas Historical Society - "Named for Gen. Oliver Otis Howard (1830-1909), a career army officer who commanded Union forces at the first and second battles of Bull Run and at Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. After the war, he served as head of the Freedman's Bureau, and was later in the Indian campaigns. Howard was a moral crusader, insisting his troops attend prayer and temperance meetings, and he championed the freedom and equality of former slaves, helping to found what became Howard University in Washington, D.C."
