Centennial West: Essays on the Northern Tier States
In 1889-1890, the admission to the Union of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota added more territory to the US than any admission since the original 13 colonies. These 12 essays, revised after their presentation at a centennial conference in Billings, Montana, June 1989, cover topics including law enforcement and the development of legal institutions, statehood and territorial politics, labor movements, life on Indian reservations, the development of railroad towns, and New Deal investment in the region.
