David Atchison and the Sacking of Lawrence

Former Missouri Senator David Atchison’s speech inciting border ruffians to violence in the 1856 sacking of Lawrence has become part of the lore of the free-state story in Kansas. But did Atchison really give this “border justice” speech during the Lawrence raid? Join us as historians Bruce Mactavish and Kelly Erby of Washburn University examine the evidence in a free talk at the Watkins.
