Overview

Famous for wild cow towns like Dodge City and Abilene, Kansas was also a center for the debate over slavery before the Civil War. Fighting between the sides was vicious enough to earn the region the name of Bleeding Kansas. Life in the state is more sedate these days. It’s home to the Department of Defense’s only maximum security prison and Cawker City boasts the world’s largest ball of twine. The larger metro areas like Kansas City and Wichita are better bets for finding medical assistant positions.
