Today, 150 years ago, the federal government officially recognized Kansas as a state.  After six years of terrorism and guerilla warfare between the "Pukes" (aka Border Ruffians)  and the Jayhawkers, the Jayhawkers won.  Topeka triumphed over Lecompton; free labor and free soil triumphed over the evils of slavery.

God bless, my home state, Kansas.  To the stars through difficulties.
