Holiday Greetings from Our Man in the Field & Some Lecompton Pics

I am happy to share this communication from H. Scott Wolfe, our "man in the field" contributor:

Greetings...Was perusing Mr. Smyth’s account of Samuel Jones’ burial site [see Rich Smyth's "Where Are They Now" column, Nov. 22] and thought I would provide you with some images taken last May in Lecompton, Kansas. Spent some time there, in the “nest” of the proslavers. The first image shows Jones’ original tombstone, once to be found in Las Cruces, New Mexico. It is displayed adjacent to “Constitution Hall,” a structure built by Jones, and once home to the Kansas proslavery legislature.
Have a happy holiday!
The Man in the Field
