Title'An Altar, a Tribute to Liberty'
AbstractDedication of a newly constructed overlook of the Quindaro ruins in Wyandotte County took place September 13, 2008. "In the mid-1800s, the Quindaro Ruins site was an abolitionist community in Kansas that thrived near the Missouri River. The former city of Qindaro helped establish Kansas as a free state and was a stop on the Underground Railroad."
