Stellarossa: Independence, Missouri & Lawrence/Osawatomie, Kansas

Jump to last reply

As a part of the three month trip I was looking at visiting Indepedence, Missouri, as I know it was from there that many if not all of the trails (oregon, santa fe etc) originated from. Is there any sort of historical markers or visitors centre/museum there?

Secondly I've read a lot about Quantrill and his irregulars (which included a young Jesse James) and believe some of the action centered around Lawrence, again anything like a museum etc? What about at Osawatomie, Kansas, where John Brown and sons slaughtered those pro-slavery people?

Thanks
