The Struggles for Freedom on the Missouri/Kansas Border Extraordinary events in the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area (FFNHA) forever changed America. In the nineteenth century, the nation turned its eyes to the Missouri/Kansas border, where peoples with diverse definitions of freedom collided, inciting and fueling the Civil War. The impact of these events is forever woven into the nation’s fabric.
We began as a grassroots effort through the work of people just like you, who were concerned about our landscape and understood that we have an important, nationally significant story to share. Our themes are strong in shaping the frontier, the Missouri/Kansas Border War and the enduring struggle for freedom.
We appreciate your interest in Freedom's Frontier and look forward to your participation. Join us in our efforts in helping to interpret area history that helped shape a nation.
