[In a footnote, the author discusses some other artists, and tells us "In 1940, Harry Still of Lawrence
claimed that his grandfather, Henry Still, made the sketch in the "Weekly" for September 5, 1863.
Henry Still, according to his grandson, lived in Tonganoxie, some 15 miles from Lawrence, and he
visited Lawrence the day of the raid and made drawings." The sketches are shown at the sites below.]
