Today is the 140th anniversary of the raid on Lawrence, Kansas by Bill Quantrill. Feelings still run high in the border area of Kansas and Missouri--people in Missouri still express resentment at the treatment of their ancestors by "Kansas Jayhawks" during the Federal occupation--Kansans still complain of the murderous Missourians (Frank James rode with Quantrill, i don't recall if Jesse did so, and i believe Cole Younger rode with Quantrill also).
I don't have time for one of my usual, long, tedious disquisitions, but i've got a link for y'all:
