AbstractFollow the author as he explores different historic places in Kansas. "After a fight over free-or slave-state status (thus another moniker, "Bleeding Kansas"), the free-state Wyandotte Constitution was ratified in 1859, and on January 29, 1861, Kansas entered the Union as the 34th state." Includes a picture of the ranch house at the Spring Hill Farm and Stock Ranch, now part of Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, built in 1881 by rancher Stephen F. Jones.
