Peter Zacharias, owner of Goldmakers Fine Jewelry which is located in historic Miller’s Hall. Zacharias is sitting with some of the artifacts he's found in the building and elsewhere in Kansas — as well as a whiskey jug that he believes belonged to Larkin Skaggs, the only one of Quantrill's men to be killed during the raid on Lawrence in 1863.

Zacharias found the whiskey jug near the tree behind him in this photo while excavating 25 years ago to improve his back yard's drainage. Listen to the audio clip below to hear the full story behind why he believes this jug belonged to Skaggs.
