The Struggles for Freedom on the Missouri/Kansas Border
Extraordinary events in Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area 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 a Civil War. The impact of these events is forever woven into the nation’s fabric.

They understood that we have an important, nationally significant story to share about shaping the frontier, the Missouri-Kansas Border War and the enduring struggle for freedom. Join us in our efforts in helping to interpret history that helped shape a nation.
