Kansas gravestones linked to Quantrill raid to be relocated

A Civil War-era gravestone linked to the infamous Quantrill’s Raid has been discovered in a Kansas forest.

Historians believe that one of the two gravestones belongs to a man killed in Quantrill’s Raid, a bloody attack on the nearby town of Lawrence during the Civil War. • Article
