Lane's portrait can be used as a tool to discuss his actions during William Quantrill's raid on Lawrence on the night of August 21, 1863. In addition, Lane was one of the primary targets of Quantrill's group and his escape at night through a cornfield helps demonstrate the terror and panic ellicited by the guerilla raid that shocked Lawrence, the state of Kansas, and the United States (often referred to as the Lawrence Massacre).
