Fort Titus

This small building, sitting on the edge of Lecompton, KS, was once a proslavery stronghold. It was used as a gathering point and defensive ground against the neighboring Free State men of Kansas. A battle ensued on August 16, 1856, and after Titus and his men surrendered, the small fort was put to the torch.
