Few Idahoans are aware that over 10% of the horses that served in South Africa’s Second Anglo-Boer War – the last horse-powered war in history – were supplied by Kittie Wilkins, the Horse Queen of Idaho. Philip Homan, Associate Professor at Idaho State University, will be on hand to discuss this equine “Middle Passage.”
