I've found a little time
each night to read and just finished Jane Smiley's
historical novel, set in 1850 Bloody Kansas. The struggle to end
slavery makes our current issues look pretty minor.
heroine, Lidie Newton, spends much of the story wearing a dress of green
serge. What is this I ask? According to Wikopedia, it is
like denim, and in 1850, is most likely to have been wool.
OK Lady Kansans, step
outside today and just imagine!! (Oh, there would be some
undergarments too. - wait, I think my husband left for the office
today wearing something of this sort, including a silk tie at the neck
to hold in the heat! Poor guy! LOL)
Well, we are thankful for, and
in awe of, those early settlers who persevered all that Kansas
Territory had to throw at them to help make it a State.
Help us CELEBRATE KANSAS and our
sesquicentennial of statehood - 1861 - 2011!
