Shipping from the State of New York to Kansas
The Dutch were the first to settle by the Hudson River in 1624. After two years, they founded the colony of New Amsterdam on Manhattan Island. By 1664, the English had taken control of the area and changed its name to New York. A part of the original 13 colonies, New York played a vital political and strategic role in the American Revolution.

Kansas whose capital is Topeka is bordered by Nebraska in the north; Missouri in the east; Oklahoma in the south; and Colorado in the west. The state is divided into 105 counties with 628 cities. Its largest county by surface area is Butler County. The state is equidistant from both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Kansas, situated on the American Great Plains, gained statehood as the 34th in the country on January 29, 1861. Its path to statehood was a long one filled with blood. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 opened both territories to settlement and allowed the new settlers to decide whether the states would be admitted into the union as “free” or “slave”. The north and south competed to send the most settlers into the region and this quickly resulted in violence. Hence the appellation “Bleeding Kansas”.
In 1954, Kansas became a battleground of the civil rights movement when the pivotal Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka case was decided in the Supreme Court. This resulted in the abolishment of the “separate but equal” doctrine in public schools. Kansas is also known for its contributions to jazz music and barbecue.
Kansas has some nicknames including Sunflower State, Wheat State, and Jayhawk State of the country. The state’s motto is “Ad Astra per Aspera” which means “to the stars through difficulties” which simulates its history of struggle.
