Summary

Positioned in the geographic center of the contiguous 48 states, Kansas has played a vital role in the nation┐s development. From its Native American roots┐the state is named for the Kansa tribe┐Kansas has been both eyewitness and participant to history. No state, literally or figuratively, has been more in the middle of America┐s fascinating story than the Sunflower State. Culled from Library of Congress and Kansas Historical Society collections, the nearly 200 striking black-and-white images in Historic Photos of Kansas trace a progression from ┐Bleeding Kansas,┐ a period of violent struggle between free-state abolitionists and pro-slavery sympathizers, to the state┐s many contributions to westward expansion, railroads, agriculture, and America at war. Although these photos speak for themselves, when combined with captions and chapter introductions, they will transport curious readers to a close-up view of Kansans helping to write history.
