Meet the Past - William Clarke Quantrill
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III returns for a conversation with William Clarke Quantrill, portrayed by Aaron Worley, on the 149th anniversary of Quantrill’s raid on Lawrence, Kansas.
Quantrill earned notoriety for the 1863 raid on the abolitionist stronghold of Lawrence, in which some 180 unarmed men and boys were killed.
The event will be taped by KCPT for later broadcast.
Major funding provided by the Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust, Ken and Cindy McClain, and the J.B. Reynolds Foundation.
