From 1812 to 1821, Kansas was part of the Missouri Territory.By that time the violence in Kansas had largely subsided, but during the Civil War, on August 21, 1863, William Quantrill led several hundred men on a raid into Lawrence, destroying much of the city and killing nearly 200 people.He was roundly condemned by both the conventional Confederate military and the partisan rangers commissioned by the Missouri legislature.The geographic center of Kansas is in Barton County.Kansas is underlain by a sequence of horizontal to gently westward dipping sedimentary rocks.Directly presaging the American Civil War, these forces collided, entering into skirmishes that earned the territory the name of Bleeding Kansas.
