From the Ashes
A special section celebrating Lawrence’s sesquicentennial
September 19, 2004
The city of Lawrence was founded on a political idea. Eli Thayer, a member of the Massachusetts Legislature, proposed that the Kansas Territory be filled with free men “who hated slavery and who would drive the hideous thing from the broad and beautiful plains where they were going to raise free homes.” He drew up a charter for what was called the Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Company.
Founding based in abolishing slavery
September 19, 2004
Lawrence was founded as the western outpost for the Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Company, in an effort to populate the debatable territory of Kansas with free-state advocates. Other communities of free-state advocates were founded, but the Lawrence group seems to have been the most militant, and it was about Lawrence that much of the border strife centered in the six or seven years before the Civil War.
Lawrence burned, looted in border hostilities
Abolitionist news presses, Free State Hotel destroyed
September 19, 2004
Behind the Jones Raid on Lawrence on May 21, 1856, was the growing clash between Free State and pro-slavery advocates. Samuel J. Jones, postmaster of Westport, Mo., (now part of Kansas City) was appointed sheriff of Douglas County, but he continued to hold his postmastership. He was objectionable to the people of Douglas County (or at least of Lawrence) because he had been one of the leaders of the 1,000 Missourians who participated in the Lawrence election of March 20, 1855.

Quantrill’s raid left Lawrence in ruins, killed 143 men
September 19, 2004
An outgrowth of the partisanship of the pre-Civil War days was the Quantrill raid of Aug. 21, 1863. William Quantrill and a band of 200 or 300 men had been meeting in the hills southeast of Kansas City and making forays into Kansas. Quantrill attacked Olathe one night and stole considerable property. One person was killed. Most of the raids were for plunder, but the raid on Lawrence, according to the Rev. Richard Cordley, was deliberately for slaughter. Lawrence in the ‘50s was the center of free-state activity, and in the ‘60s it typified opposition to the slavery idea.

Exercise essential tool for managing osteoarthritis
September 19, 2004

It is believed to be responsible for medical costs ranging from $15.5 billion to $28.6 billion annually. It is different from rheumatoid arthritis and will be treated differently, although the symptoms may be similar. So don’t confuse the two; learn the difference.
