About Kansas

Kansas is a state located in the Midwestern United States. Kansas is the 15th largest state by area and is the 34th most populous of the 50 United States with a population of 2,913,314. Kansas is bordered by Nebraska on the north, Missouri on the east, Oklahoma on the south, and Colorado on the west. The state capital is Topeka, and its largest city is Wichita, with its most populated county being Johnson County. Kansas is named after the Kansas River, which in turn was named after the Kansa Native American tribe; the river is a tributary of the Missouri River. The tribe's name (natively kką:ze) is often said to mean "people of the (south) wind" although this was probably not the term's original meaning. For thousands of years, what is now Kansas was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. Tribes in the eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys. Tribes in the western part of the state were semi-nomadic and hunted large herds of bison. Kansas was first settled by European Americans in the 1830s, in the vicinity of Independence. settlers from the east moved westward along the Santa Fe Trail.

During the American Civil War, Kansas was a central battleground, as both pro-slavery and antislavery forces sought to control or influence the state. After the war, the Trans-Mississippi Theater of the American Old West was centered in Kansas. The state is also remembered as the site of two of the most bloody battles in the Civil War: the battles of Antietam and Gettysburg.

In the late 19th century, on the eve of the American frontier's closing, William Quantrill led a raid on Lawrence which killed nearly 200 people. His raiders burned buildings and looted businesses, and Lawrence residents retaliated by attacking Missouri settlements.

In the 21st century, Kansas is considered a conservative state. The state's economy is centered on agriculture, light manufacturing, and transportation. The state's largest industries are animal husbandry and food processing. Kansas grows wheat, corn, sorghum, and soybeans. Cattle, hogs, and dairy products are also major parts of the state's agriculture.

Kansas is home to two major research universities, Kansas State University and the University of Kansas. The state also has numerous smaller community colleges, including Washburn University, Wichita State University, and Pitt
