Friend Kurt and others here present:
I'm gathering source material for a conflict simulation covering the Civil War's Kansas-Missouri theater. Ideally, the book/source/info would deal with the political/social/military struggle in both states, especially on both sides of the Kansas-Missouri border; Bleeding Kansas and Missouri's Burned Lands were part and parcel of the same murderous struggle starting in the 1850's and continuing long after the Civil War. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
The world will never love us. They respect us - they might even grow to fear us.
But they will never love us, for we have too much audacity!
