Kansas was a part of the Louisana purchase in
1803. Government expeditions to the area reported it to be a desert, starting
the myth of the Great American Desert. As the land was deemed unfit
for white habitation, Indians from he East were moved into the area to
live. Hostilities betweent he whites and indians increased when the
Santa Fe Trail traversed the state beginning in 1821. To protect
travelers, forts were established along the trail, beginning with Fort
Leavenworth in 1827. Later, the Oregon Trail crossed northeastern
Kansas remained unorganized territory until 1854 when the Kansas-Nebraska Act created the Kansas and Nebraska territories. Kansas had the same boundaries as today except that its western boundary was the "summit of the Rocky Mountains". The Kansas-Nebraska Act also stipulated that the people of a territory would decide by majority vote whether Kansas would be a free or slave state. This act stimulated migration to Kansas as both pro and antislavery forces tried to gain the upper hand. The violence that marked the years from 1854 to statehood in 1861 led to the term "Bleeding Kansaas". Kansas ultimately voted to be a free state. Many of the indian tribes in the state agreed to leave the state by 1867 and move to Oklahoma.
