FOX4, something tells me Lawrence won’t be ‘celebrating’ Quantrill’s Raid

In 1863, William Quantrill led a group of marauders from Missouri across the state line into Lawrence, burning the town and murdering as many as 200 men and boys.

While Lawrence city leaders mull ways to mark the 150th anniversary of the massacre, no one will be “celebrating” the date, as FOX4 suggests in a headline on a published last night.

    Needs to be remembered, It was just a War act. Jayhawkers did just a bad acts to MO, bruning Osceola, MO before the Lawrence Raid as well as murder of Missouri Women….the Lawrence Jayhawkers of 1863 were not all that innocent. Should have been called “Quantrill’s Payback:”
