150 Years Ago Today....

Quantrill burned Lawrence.

Some folks don't have a clue about WHY 400 men from Missouri would agree to ride together to Lawrence, in 1863, on a suicide mission. It was NOT about slavery. Rather, it was "payback" for the countless times the Kansas Redlegs (and federal soldiers) rode into Missouri, stealing (jayhawking), burning and killing Missourians.

The final-straw was the killing of the young women locked-up in the Kansas City house (jail). That cowardly act of violence caused the Missouri men to willingly forfeit their lives to pay back every man (and boy) living in Lawrence, KS with their own lives. It was out-of-control.

Ya know
Best post in the thread. We both had our share of psychopaths, and while some toast Bill, we put our nut jobs on the capital dome. This payback was merely payback for a previous payback, that was a previous payback before that.

What I find amazing is the differences in history in MO and KS. I married a MO girl and it was eye opening to listen to her perspective as she recalled it being taught. Examples - we were taught we were Jayhawkers, no clue what a red legger was. We called Missourians 'ruffians', she informed me it was 'bush whackers'. Never heard about the prison collapse, she had never heard of Marais Des Cygnes.

But why'd you have to burn our town again? Wasn't once enough? Seriously, you rode through Gardner...a match there would have been an improvement.

Though a couple of different but similar looking guns were used for filming including both kitted to fire blanks and real unfired Walker’s along with Colt 1860 Army pistols. Creative editing kept the audience from noticing.

All that shoot-en Mr. Wales did with them there Walkers & not one time did the loading rod latch fail on either, hanging up the second shot. Only in Hollywood does that happen
High shooting & usually about dead on at 65 to 75 yards. Least the replicas are Uberti ,Armi San Marco & Colt signature series . Heavy & huge to. Coming in at over 5 lbs when fully charged.
