History and Memory with Leif Fredrickson

Jul 30

In 1916, historians and boosters began erecting statues of John Mullan across the Pacific Northwest. Fifty years before, Lieutenant Mullan and his men had built a wagon road across the Rocky Mountains, connecting the heads of navigation on the Missouri and Columbia River. The road became an important trade route for burgeoning gold camps and trade towns in the inland Northwest. Fredrickson will discuss the origin of the monuments, their meanings at the time, and the history and memory of the since they were built.
