Instead of battling the West with a pistol, Abraham Lincoln tamed America's western territories with his famous pen. By passing laws that offered cheap land, adequate railway transportation, and inexpensive, practical education, Lincoln provided the means for the settlement of the Great American West. By examining policies, problems, and actions, Abraham Lincoln and the Western Territories tells the story of how the Wild West was won for the Union. A Burnham Publishers boo

Primary source material is the current buzz concept among historians. This colorful and fascinating collection of documents traces the paper trail that is the story of Washington State from its years as a territory starting in 1854 (showing the officially recorded seal of the Washingtonia held in the Washington State Archives) to the Google map of the state that is archived in the cloud. In that 150-year span we have a letter from the chief surveyor of the territory to the acting governor in 1860 protesting the protection that a Canadian boat has given to his escaped slave. We have Governor Pickering's transcribed telegram to President Abraham Lincoln on the occasion of Thanksgiving 1864. The Point Elliot Treaty is a poignant document that transfers all of the land that becomes Seattle from the various Native tribes. A series of letters from a young woman in Spokane to her boyfriend laments the "sporting life" she finds her self mired in (that would be prostitution). The book includes posters and letters that support and condemn women's right to vote; prohibition of the sale of alcohol; aid to the unemployed during the Great Depression. Here are the manifests for materials to create the massive and highly secretive "instant" city at Richland that was the Manhattan Project. The Cold War invaded Washington, and the American Legion distributed their brochure entitled How to Spot a Communist. The modern era is represented by an ad for the first Lame Fest concert featuring Mudhoney and Nirvana, the original box that contained Windows 95, a post calling all protesters to the WTO conference, the Good Fruit Grower's celebratory comments on the rise of merlot. Historian Lorraine McConaghy has traversed the state and sifted through the files of over 100 disparate archives to cull some 400+ items represented in this book.

Free Boy is the story of a 13-year-old slave who escaped from Washington Territory to freedom in Canada on the West's underground railroad. When James Tilton came to Washington Territory as surveyor-general in the 1850s he brought with his household young Charles Mitchell, a slave he had likely received as a wedding gift from a Maryland cousin. The story of Charlie's escape in 1860 on a steamer bound for Victoria and the help he received from free blacks reveals how national issues on the eve of the Civil War were also being played out in the West. Written with young adults in mind, the authors provide the historical context to understand the lives of both Mitchell and Tilton and the time in which the events took place. The biography explores issues of race, slavery, treason, and secession in Washington Territory, making it both a valuable resource for teachers and a fascinating story for readers of all ages.

This first-ever volume to comprehensively explore President Abraham Lincoln’s ties to the American West brings together a variety of scholars and experts who offer a fascinating look at the sixteenth president’s lasting legacy in the territory beyond the Mississippi River. Editor Richard W. Etulain’s extensive introductory essay treats these western connections from Lincoln’s early reactions to Texas, Oregon, and the Mexican War in the 1840s, through the 1850s, and during his presidency, providing a framework for the nine essays that follow. Each of these essays offers compelling insight into the many facets of Lincoln’s often complex interactions with the American West. Included in this collection are a provocative examination of Lincoln’s opposition to the Mexican War; a discussion of the president’s antislavery politics as applied to the new arena of the West; new perspectives on Lincoln’s views regarding the Thirteenth Amendment and his reluctance regarding the admission of Nevada to the Union; a fresh look at the impact of the Radical Republicans on Lincoln’s patronage and appointments in the West; and discussion of Lincoln’s favorable treatment of New Mexico and Arizona, primarily Southern and Democratic areas, in an effort to garner their loyalty to the Union. Also analyzed is “The Tribe of Abraham”—Lincoln’s less-than-competent appointments in Washington Territory made on the basis of political friendship—and the ways in which Lincoln’s political friends in the Western Territories influenced his western policies. Other essays look at Lincoln’s dealings with the Mormons of Utah, who supported the president in exchange for his tolerance, and American Indians, whose relations with the government suffered as the president’s attention was consumed by the crisis of the Civil War. In addition to these illuminating discussions, Etulain includes a detailed bibliographical essay, complete with examinations of previous interpretations and topics needing further research, as well as an extensive list of resources for more information on Lincoln's ties west of the Mississippi. Loaded with a wealth of information and fresh historical perspectives, Lincoln Looks West explores yet another intriguing dimension to this dynamic leader and to the history of the American West.
