Happy Kansas Day!

After a brief review of important Kansas facts, we reviewed westward migration, farming on the plains, the rise of populism, and the end of the frontier.

Over the weekend, read the article reprint I distributed in class.

  • Do you agree with the author’s assessment of the Mugwumps?  Why/why not?  Give examples.
  • Would we be better off to bring back the Stalwarts or Half-Breeds instead?  Explain.
