Dramatic interpretations and talks about the violent territorial and civil war history of Kansas, from 1854-1865, will highlight the 2018 annual Bleeding Kansas series, which begins January 28. The programs are held at 2 p.m. Sundays, through March 4 at Constitution Hall State Historic Site in Lecompton, KS. The series has become an anticipated annual event with excellent speakers, many of whom are researchers and authors in their area of study.
Bleeding Kansas describes that time in Kansas Territory, from 1854 to 1861, during the struggle to determine whether the new state would be free or slave. Each program explores aspects of the state’s unique history.
The suggested donation to attend is $3 for adults. Constitution Hall is located at 319 Elmore, in Lecompton, Kansas.
