Kansas – The Sunflower State was first crossed by the Spaniard Coronado in 1541, then by the French. The first settlers called the Indians living there the S├╝dwindvolk. The United States bought the land in 1803 as a large Louisiana land purchase and in 1861 became the 34th state in the Union. The capital is Topeka. The approximately 2.3 million inhabitants live from cattle breeding and from the cultivation of maize and wheat.
