On Letter: Raid recollections


4 years, 10 months ago

Thank you Mr. Taylor for your comments. Yes you are right there are several references to that area being a burial site from Quantrill's Raid. Enough references that the State Archaeologist did indeed visit this past spring and do a preliminary dig of the area you are referring to, and did not uncover any human bones. If any human bones had been found, the excavation would have been stopped immediately for the State Archaeologist to do a proper dig. So I am grateful to the city for staying on top of that issue and making sure this preliminary investigation was done BEFORE construction began, as no one wanted to see a graveyard unearthed during excavation.
