Strategically, Fort Scott was part of the Permanent Indian Frontier. This was more or less a north to south line running from Texas to the Canadian border, west of which it was assumed that nobody in their right minds would want to try farming. It was seen as land that really wasn't good for much of anything, so we could just let the Indians keep it. That part didn't work out quite as planned, as ranching, mining (notably gold and silver), regular farming, then dry land farming techniques, and all the transportation and communication infrastructure needed to support them came in.
