Scoundrels and Statesmen


Kansas Senator and General of Volunteers Jim Lane will confront his biographer tonight when the Civil War Roundtable convenes. Robert Collins has written the latest biography of the insane senator from Kansas, who could be called "Lincoln's Rasputin." Collins's title sums up the great man-- Jim Lane: Scoundrel, Statesman, Kansan. Bob presents his take on Lane and is joined by Tim Rues who portrays the firebrand. It should be a great evening. You're welcome to join us: 6:30 at the Kansas Museum of History, inside the Mission.

Hey Deb!
Can't wait to sign books and chew the fat with you and Tom at the Kansas State Historical Society Museum store on the 30th! It should be a grand time. Saw my name on Amazon.com today and got a real kick out of that! Bring plenty of copies of Scalp Dance, I think it sells well with The Prairie Table Cookbook!!! It should be a dandy day- Indians, Kansas, beef, cowboys and all kinds of scoundrels like Jim Lane and the like. This will be one for the record books!
