Civil War on the Western Border
Five years ago, the Kansas City Public Library and its archival partners announced the launch of the website Civil War on the Western Border: The Missouri-Kansas Conflict, 1854-1865. The numbers since then speak to its impact: some 608,000 online visitors and more than 1.3 million page views, with usage continuing to climb.
The Library is currently migrating its large collection of digital historic images to a new software platform. An unfortunate consequence of our data migration is that we need to take the entire collection offline for about two months while the work is completed.
