Lawrence has been an island of progressive politics from the start. Founded by abolitionists in 1854 and an important stop on the Underground Railroad, it became a battlefield in the clash between pro- and antislavery factions. The city's free-thinking spirit lives on to this day with eclectic shops, edgy bars and a youthful optimism (it's the home of the University of Kansas).
