Much has been written about Missouri’s Civil War guerillas, but what about the women who associated with them? In this talk Dr. Whites will explore the shady identity of one of those women, Kate King, the alleged “child bride” of William Clark Quantrill, the man most responsible for the sack of Lawrence, Kansas. The evidence would suggest that Civil War women like Kate King (aka: Kate Clark Quantrill, Kate Clark, Kate Edwards, Kate Bateson, Kate
Head) had their own ways of waging war.
Please join us for this fascinating lecture and discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
