From what I have been told, by olden relatives, it came from the fact,that after the civil war, Texas sent huge amounts of cattle north to Chicago's slaughter houses, because of the new meat demand, and due to the fact that Texas was rather unhurt during the war, they had the meat on the hoof at han…d. They were taken off of the range, and shipped to Kansas City, where they were relayed to Chicago, but since the range in Texas is somewhat rough, the resulting beef cuts were not as tender as desired, but rather like the old cattle trails from yore, where the cattle were driven to the train yards up north, and the meat was somewhat tough. As a result, cattle yards would keep some of the cattle there, and would fatten them up for as much as a month, on corn and other grains, so as to gently tenderize them, and ergo, these steaks were know as KC steaks, because of this process. That is what I recall. Hope that this helps. (MORE)

The original Kansas Troubles quilt was created in 1850 during the period when Kansas was petitioning to become the 34th state in the union. The "troubles" related to whether Kansas would choose to be a slave-holding state or a "free" state. Northern and southern politicians engaged in terrorist acti…vities in their efforts to swing the vote; for a time, the territory was called "Bleeding Kansas." (Kansas ultimately chose to enter as a free state.) Although the quilt style we call Kansas Troubles arose during this period, the name was not applied to it until well afterwards. The first printed mention was in 1890. The defining pattern of the style is a series of triangles that "rotate" from block to block. (MORE)
