    Catchup [KS, MO]

    June 12 in the United States

    We've been far more disconnected than usual of late. Our sprint east included three historical stops in one day: Fort Scott, known mostly as an important outpost for travelers headed toward the Santa Fe trail. [But remembered indelibly by us as the the scene of a lynching witnessed by a young George Washington Carver.]

    Then it was on to George Washington Carver's boyhood home, just across the Kansas border into Missouri. While Carver is well known for his peanut work it's the formative influences growing up orphaned and in extreme poverty that are most remarkable.

    Final stop of the day was another battlefield-- Wilson's Creek. This site south of the Missouri state capital witnessed yet another bloody defeat by the Union early in the war.
