Description

Portraits of four men shot down together during Quantrill's Raid, Dr. J.F. Griswold, H.W. Baker, Josiah C. Trask, and S.M. Thorpe, compiled for Richard Cordley's A History of Lawrence, Kansas (1895). The four men were lodging with their families in J.F. Griswold's house the day of the massacre. They were lured out of the house with the promise they wouldn't be hurt and then shot down. J.F. Griswold and Josiah C. Trask died immediately, and S.M. Thorpe died of his injuries the next day. H.W. Baker recovered and lived to be 94. The widows of J.F. Griswold and Josiah Trask would later become Lawrence librarians.
