Sound Off: Quantrill's Raid depictions

In the recent Journal-World special insert about the Quantrill’s Raid sesquicentennial, there is an article about film and television depictions of the raid from the 1940’s to the present. Are these available at the public library or anywhere in Lawrence so they can be seen? Are they ever shown by the city?

You can find “Dark Command,” a fictionalized story of Quantrill’s raid starring John Wayne, and “Ride with the Devil,” the more historically accurate 1999 movie with Tobey Maguire, at the Lawrence Public Library. Liberty Hall has shown Quantrill movies like “Bloody Dawn” before, but does not have another Quantrill movie showing planned in the near future.
