  • LJWorld.com | Free State Festival panel: Kansas is anything but 'flyover country'
    2 hours agoNewsmakers
    Earlier this spring, Kansas University researchers officially debunked the famous myth that Kansas, with its level topography, is in fact "flatter than a pancake." A trio of experts attempted to do the same for the state's political history Saturday afternoon at the Lawrence Arts Center as part of the Free State Festival's series of idea panels. During the discussion, dubbed "Kansas: Not as Flat as a Pancake," panelists argued how iconic figures like Sen. Bob Dole as well as the state’s tumultuous political climate of the 19th century prove Kansas is much more than just "flyover country." Jeremy Neely, a professor of history at Missouri State University, said that many historians wrongly overlook Kansas’ involvement in the abolitionist movement that led to the Civil War.
