Back In The Day, This Quiet Kansas Town Was A Wild West Hangout

The Sunflower State was not admitted to the Union until 1861, long after many others. It’s easy to assume that there isn’t nearly as much history in Kansas as there is in the original 13 colonies. However, the area has a rich history that’s just as eventful, if not more so, than New England’s tales of the Liberty Bell and Paul Revere. Not long after Kansas became a state in 1861, the town of Dodge City was first settled. Today, it’s among the largest cities in Kansas and a popular tourist destination, but this place was once nicknamed “the wickedest town in the American West.” Learn about this Wild West town in Kansas:
