Kansas

Kansas has been a territory with more than a quarter century of fighting with no end in sight. Due to the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, people of the territory could vote on which country they would throw support for this has lead to a micro civil war between the Union Jayhawkers and the Confederate “Border Ruffians.” Only the fact that official military units are prohibited keeps full scale war from breaking out, but does little to curb guerrilla style conflicts.
