The Civil War on The Western Border (the real border war)

Prior to the first official battle of the war (Battle of Fort Sumter), Kansas had experienced this civil unrest constantly from the mid 1850′s through the beginning of the war.  The unrest involved two political parties:  The Freestate Men of Kansas, and the Pro-Slavery Secessionists of Missouri.  The war revolved around multiple different issues, most notably whether or not Kansas would be admitted into the Union as a state free from slavery or as a Southern, pro-slavery state.

I’ve always been a shy noninvasive type of person but when it came to metal detecting I couldn’t be. Gathering permissions is the most important part after research when it comes to detecting because well simply put, it’s illegal to trespass and that’s the last step you have to go through before you get access to the history in the ground! It can be extremely intimidating. Especially people that are just starting out and venturing away from the public spots. I would suggest reaching out to family and friends first and see if they have old property or if they know someone who owns old property. That is a great first step because you might be surprised what people can get you access to. But if you're past all of that and are ready to start knocking doors, here is some helpful advice....
