What is Freedom's Frontier?

Events that happened in the 29 eastern Kansas and 12 western Missouri counties of Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area led to the Civil War and an enduring struggle for freedom. Conflict over slavery and other issues drew those on both sides into a violent Border War. Missouri heroes were Kansas villains. Kansas victories were Missouri tragedies. Now Freedom’s Frontier bridges the border. Explore Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area and experience from many viewpoints the strong freedom story that runs along the Missouri Kansas border.
