Kansas Territory played an important part in both the Westward Migration and the battle between pro- and anti-slavery forces prior to the Civil War. This book explores these and other aspects of Kansas's history as it traces the development of the territory from the time it was first occupied by Plains Indians until it achieved statehood in January 1861.
