Sesquicentennial Observance 
of
Quantrill's Attack on Fort Blair
and
The Baxter Springs Massacre

As one of only two sites in Kansas commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Civil War events, the Baxter Springs Heritage Center and Museum held a two day event and an encampment. The free event was held on October 5 and 6, 2013, the 150th anniversary of Quantrill's arrival in Baxter Springs and the eventual massacre of almost 100 Union soldiers and sympathizers. Our celebration also included an encampment at our recreation of Fort Blair.
