Cool Things from Kansas

caryhamm.gif The Kansas State Historical Society has an online counterpart to their collection called Cool Things. And you know what? They really do have some cool things like Carry Nation's Hammer, a dumbbell belonging to George Armstrong Custer, and Mickey Mouse Undies from the 1930s.

Read up on why so many of today's cowboys and cowgirls need to thank Charles Hyer or how Agnes the Frog ran for Douglas County Commissioner in 1986 and received nearly 30% of the vote.

Carry on my wayward Kansas, carry on.
