Bleeding Kansas: The Real Start to the Civil War (Lecture & Book Signing)

Join us at the Watkins Museum of History for a special presentation by author and historian Robert C. Jones. Bleeding Kansas: The Real Start to the Civil War will explore John Brown's abolitionist efforts in Kansas and other parts of the nation. Jones will provide insights into Bleeding Kansas and the massacres and various battles that characterized this turbulent time. Copies of Robert Jones' books, including Bleeding Kansas the Real Start of the Civil War will be for sale and the author will be available for book signings.  Also take time to browse the temporary and permanant exhibits on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the museum including the kids' playhouse area complete with new dress up costumes. Temporary exhibits include: Education in Lawrence, Memorials and Memories: Honoring Lawrence's Union Veterans, Movies Stars on Main Street: Lawrence and The Dark Command Premiere (75th anniversary exhibit), and More Than a Game: Basketball and Community Spirit (inlcuding the recent donation of a basketball from the Lawrence Promoter's Basketball Team).
