Beecher Bible and Rifle Church, Wabaunsee, KS

Named for Henry Ward Beecher, a Brooklyn, NY, minister whose church provided bibles, guns and money to abolitionists in Kansas, to support their efforts to bring KS into the union as a free state. The guns, along with the bibles, were in boxes marked "Beecher's Bibles."
