Quantrill's Raid and Order No. 11

Shared Stories
Stories written by those
Who lived through Quantrill's Raid
Who lived through Order No. 11

Saturday, the Fort Scott National Historic Site
shared those stories
And the attendees had lively questions for the moderator.

Bill Fischer
Fort Scott National Historic Site Historian

A panel of readers
shared those stories
One by one,
we watched the stories unfold.

Friends of Fort Scott National Historic Site President
Reed Hartford
one of the readers

Katie Wells, Matt Wells and Jim Scott were part of the panel

Reed Hartford and Cynthia McFarlin rounded out the panel.

Because the raid was not that far away in Lawrence, Kansas
And because Order No. 11 involved Vernon County (20 miles to the East)
there are stories of grandparents and great-grandparents
that were passed down.
And those were shared by the audience as well.

That is real living history.
