Located in the eastern part of the state of Kansas and a city in Douglas County. Lawrence is situated on the Kansas River and was founded by the antislavery radicals who went to Kansas to out-vote the pro-slavery settlers in the area and make it a “free state. The city was named after the textile manufacturer who settled in the area and funded the company settlement efforts, Amos A. Lawrence. Lawrence was a notable station during the Underground Railroadwherein the slaves escaped into free territory. And because of the town’s Jayhawker, abolitionist, headquarters, Lawrence was then sacked by the pro-slave militia wherein there were more than 150 residents that were murdered and burned the city after.
