Quantrill’s Raid Victims Memorial and Historical Talk

8/19 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

Join us at the Watkins for the most moving, important event of Civil War on the Border.

After a reading by Anthony Boynton, writer and member of B.L.A.C.K. Lawrence, community leaders will read the names of known raid victims. This will be followed with a talk by historian Fred Whitehead on “The Union Cause in Missouri.” At the end of Fred Whitehead’s talk, one lucky audience member will be chosen at random to win a $25 gift card to The Merc Co-Op.

This event will be held in-person and livestreamed on the Watkins Museum Facebook and YouTube.

Sponsored in part by the University of Kansas Department of American Studies.
Thank you to B.L.A.C.K. Lawrence for partnering with the Watkins Museum for Civil War on the Border.
