Kansas Contested Author Event with Joel Farrell

April 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Come to the Library at 4 PM on Thursday, April 11 to hear Joel Farrell discuss his book Kansas Contested. For seven years before the outbreak of the American Civil War, a “prequel” played out in towns and settlements across Kansas Territory, characterized by warfare, election fraud, and acts of terrorism. The conflict was over whether Kansas would enter the union as a slave or free state. Learn how this struggle commanded the nation’s attention and set the stage for the terrible war that followed.
