I drive through here all the time on US 169 on my monthly trips to Oklahoma. Good people live down there. But sometimes the Marais des Cygnes river bests them. Even with all the levies and dikes built around the town.
John Brown, the famous anti-slavery fighter, fought against the Missourians there in Osawatomie. And the term Jayhawks is believed to have first been used there. So I like the town already!
