Quantrill's Raid Eve: Book Launch and Signing
"Bleeding Kansas, Bleeding Missouri: The Long Civil War of the Border" by Jonathan Earle
"Bleeding Kansas, Bleeding Missouri" blends political, social, military, and intellectual history to explain why the region's divisiveness was so bitter and persisted for so long. It also explores how civil societies break down and how they are reconstructed when the conflict ends.
Join Jonathan Earle and the Lawrence Public Library for the book launch and signing that will include refreshments from Free State Brewery and books sold by the Raven Bookstore.
