             TEACHERS GUIDES

  The QSCR 's goal to educate and lend a hand to teachers and educators is further enhanced by the many lesson plan and curriculum books and guides that are provided within the collection. It is the purpose of these many resources to allow teachers to convert or adapt the many known Civil War events specifically to the Kansas-Missouri border war events and people. For example, instead of asking and researching how Atlanta was rebuilt after Sherman's raid, how was Lawrence, Kansas rebuilt after Quantrill's raid?
