KG and Ringy are on the front lines of Bleeding Kansas, where the deadliest conflict in our nation's history had its roots, and they're determined to find the oldest “civ” possible: the bullet from the first shot fired in the civil war before the Civil War. The first stop is a landmark on the Underground Railroad — a river crossing used by the militia and escaping slaves.
