Civil War Reenactment on Twitter

The Lawrence Massacre, also known as Quantrill's raid during the Civil War took place 150 years ago today. Pro-slavery forces from Missouri attacked the town of Lawrence, Kansas, because its citizens were anti-slavery. Historians (with accounts in the names of real people who were there) are reenacting the entire sequence in real time …on Twitter! You can follow along as different characters give 140-character updates on what they are experiencing. Link -via Boing Boing
