Did your ancestor ride with William Clarke Quantrill?
August 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of Quantrill’s siege on Lawrence, Kansas. The Cass County Public Library Genealogy Branch, Cass County Civil War Roundtable and Cass County Historical Society will host a bus tour on August 17, 2013 tracing the route of Quantrill through Jackson and Cass Counties. We would like to give special recognition to the descendants of the bold men who accompanied Quantrill throughout the war and especially during the trip to raid Lawrence. If you know your ancestor was one of these men we would like to have your contact information. If you suspect one of your ancestors was with Quantrill, we can help you research and document the facts. Please feel free to post your comments here or contact us.
