Kansas is rich in civil war history. John Brown , Quantril ,Jim Lane and Wild Bill Hickok to name a few. And yet very few relics seem to surface. They are really nice. Thanks for posting Mike

They have a very nice new visitor center at the Mine Creek battlefield site.  Our local Central Plains Chapter of the Company of Military Historians (CMH) had a meeting there last year and viewed the improvements to the interpretation of the battle.  Viewing the battlefield in person really helps to see how these battles developed.
