Popular collections - Protest and reform
"Raise less corn and more hell!" Kansans aren't shy about expressing their opposition to ideas they disagree with. Through words, laws, or actions they want to make Kansas their conception of a better place. The Historical Society's online collection highlights the efforts of famous Kansas protesters and reformers such as Carrie Nation and John Brown, but also those of average people who worked to change the lives the Kansans. Can they convince you that they're right? Can they inspire you to act? Find out who they are and what they believe in by exploring our on-line collection.
