One would think that after 144 years people would have moved on, but old wounds never heal when it comes to Kansas and Missouri
Quantrill's Raid was one of the bloodiest events in the history of Kansas. William Clark Quantrill, using Missouri as his base, carried out the attack on the pro-union town of Lawrence in 1863. Today, the city seal of Lawrence commemorates Quantrill's attack with its depiction of a Phoenix rising from the ashes of the burnt city.
Now some Missouri fans are trying to cash in before the Tigers and Jayhawks square off on Nov. 24 in Kansas City.
T-shirts depicting the attack are being sold on the Internet, and as you can imagine, this is not going over well in Lawrence.
