Museum Opens Quantrills Raid Exhibit

Associated Press - August 17, 2013 6:55 am

A Lawrence museum is opening a new $300,000 exhibit as the city marks the 150th anniversary of William Clarke Quantrill’s Confederate guerrilla attack on the pro-union town.

The exhibit opens Saturday at the Watkins Museum of History. It features displays and artifacts from the Civil War and Bleeding Kansas eras.

Among the items on display is Ernst Ulmer’s 4-by-6-foot canvas painting depicting Quantrill’s Raid. The loaned piece, valued at about $30,000, greets visitors as they enter the exhibit.

It also features a newly constructed booth with a large touch-screen television that allows visitors to point to places on a digital map of Lawrence. Different points on the map tell different stories, both in pictures and audio.

A sad time in History is about to repeat itself, only this time the tables are turned and it is Federal Government who is fighting for slavery of an economic species. Again liberals are on the side of slavery only this time most minorities seem to be cutting their own throats in support of liberal slavery.
