S: Abilene Day Trip
FC: Abilene Day Trip | June 18, 2011
1: In spite of the fact that the origin of its name is biblical, Abilene, Kansas was about as unbiblical as any hell-raising and gun-shooting town on the plains could be..... One visitor to the town, in the late 1860s, described Abilene as a place where everybody was free to get drunk anywhere. --Mary Trotter Kion
