Kansas City - The Steamboat Arabia
We just recently returned from a trip to Kansas City, Missouri, and we're sharing some of the things we experienced there. We saw two museums - the World War I Museum, which was Mark's favorite, and The treasures of the Steamboat Arabia, which was mine.

The story of the Arabia takes place against the backdrop of manifest destiny and the rush to the West. In 1856, just before the civil war, the states were evenly divided, north and south, an agreement that had held the country together in an uneasy alliance. States were opened up one in the south and one in the north, together, so as not to shatter this pact.

When the US government broke this alliance by opening up both Kansas and Nebraska at the same time, they agreed to let the states choose their own alliance based on who settled there, and the race was on.
