History State of Kansas

The state was first settled by Americans in the 1850s by abolitionists from Massachusetts, who attempted to stop the spread of slavery from neighboring Missouri. Kansas, which became a free state, was a hotbed of violence and chaos in its early days as pro-slavery and anti-slavery forces collided. After the Civil War, the population of Kansas exploded as wave after wave of immigrants turned the desolate prairie into productive farmland.
