Today in Midwestern news, the Missouri town of Osceola has passed a resolution asking that the University of Kansas retire the Jayhawk from being the school's official mascot. Along with suggesting that KU change its team name, the resolution calls on the University of Missouri to make sure the full story of the Border War is told and not just the story of William Quantrill’s raid on Lawrence, Kan., in August 1863. Now, an arrogant and uppity KU alum might take this moment to remind the good citizens of Osceola that the attack on their city did not happen in a vacuum. Or, your know, we could just acknowledge that a good deal of random violence happened on both sides. After half a century of war, the Colombian government and Farc rebels say they have reached a historic peace agreement. I would add that of course, this originates in the Civil War, and Kansas was fighting for freedom, whereas Missouri was fighting for the right to…own slaves.
Haven’t seen any Mizzou and KU games lately, huh?  Just wear your crimson and blue into Columbia and see what happens! I can understand why Kansans cling so much to the Jayhawks, as they and the Wildcats (er, make that Eco-cats) are the only sports teams you have to root for. The entirety of this article and the actions it covers seem to thoroughly debunk your claim.  If Missourans don’t spend their days and nights thinking about Kansas, then why are they whining about a name in Kansas? The people in this article are from some place that obviously does think a lot about Kansas, but they are not representative of the majority of the state. At least they picked the their mascot from among the free state militias and not the other side. Is this why there is a confusingly named Kansas City in Missouri?  Fraid I don’t know much about the history.
It’s always seemed to me that the bias against Hoosier is more of a St Louis or Illinois thing.
I’m sorry to all the college sports fans, but I think the much more interesting story is the grammatical one. And the fact that Missouri was “the enemy” in the first place had nothing to do with slavery, huh? And apparently the militia that conducted the raid were the same people at the constitutional convention, because they were both Kansans. Where I come from (a hypothermic, cyanotic, ergo blue state), I’m ill-accustomed to seeing Kansas under attack from conservatives.
Note that September of 1861 (the raid on Osceola) was late enough in the Missouri-Kansas border war that it was actually after it.
Tell those racist, slave-owning Bushwhackers from Osceola that we will gladly raid their little den of iniquity town again if they didn’t get the point the first time. New flash mob idea: Don the red leggings and head to Osceola and demand they spell Kansas with a capital K!

In September of 1861, this militia raided Osceola, killing at least a dozen men and burning a good chunk of the town.
Free-staters in Kansas, including in Lawrence, had been defending themselves against attack from within and without the state for several years before the Osceola raid. It was killed by billionaire Peter Thiel in his successful quest to bankrupt Gawker Media Group through a series of lawsuits he funded – most notably wrestler Hulk Hogan, who sued over the publication of a portion of his sex tape four years ago.
However, sometimes the hardest part of entering this career path is knowing where to begin.We took the Complete Web Developer Course because it took that decision out of our hands. I did a Google search for details on the Osceola raid and learned about the freeing of the slaves that way. The first Kansas constitution not only outlawed slavery, it also banned all African Americans from the state – whether they were slave or free. If you really want to advertise that you feel some attachment to the side that wanted to own people, you go right ahead.

Thanks to congressional compromises that allowed some new states and territories to vote on whether or not they'd allow slavery, Kansas and Missouri started fighting the Civil War about a decade before the rest of the country. And the citizens of Osceola, it seems, are still pretty pissed about this and consider the mascot Jayhawk to be an example of Kansans rubbing salt in the wound.
And neither Kansans nor Missourians are currently oppressing one another, nor particularly suffering from long-term fallout of that past violence.

Both signed a bilateral ceasefire in June, which was needed before a final agreement could be reached.
This can only happen by people continuing to fill their kids’ heads up with hateful spite and sore-losership. On a side note, my wife and I adopted a dog from the Osceola animal shelter a couple years ago and the people there were as nice as can be. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. She also might wonder aloud what the heck any of this has to do with Kansas being a proper noun. Louis to Indiana or even Kansas so the remainder of Missouri could go about setting up their Randite, Christian utopia.
One lady in particular named Letichia works tirelessly to find homes for dogs that come from puppy mills that have been raided. She has her hands full as 30% of the nation’s puppy mills are in Missouri and she has almost no budget to work with. The result was a series of cross-border battles and raids aimed at destroying free-state strongholds, retaliating against slave-state strongholds, and generally intimidating people on both sides of the fence. CNN was first to report the story, and the Times has since confirmed and corrected some details.
For a while, Kansas even had dueling free-state and slave-state capital cities, which drafted their own unilateral state constitutions and, occasionally, raided each other for official state documents.
