1861: Kansas entered the Union as the 28th state

Kansas became the 28th state on this day in 1861.   

It was not easy because the nation was about to fight what we now call The Civl War.  

The admittance into the Union increased tensions over slavery.  It turned out that Kansas suffered the highest rate of fatal casualties of any Union state. 

Today, Kansas is a prosperous state and reliably Republican.       It has a population of 3 million people and a strong economy.
