The United States acquired this teriotrium as part of the purchase of Louisiana in 1803, but it was hardly used until the onset of the gold rush.
In 1862, gold was discovered in Bannack (the Pioneer Mountains in the southwest of the country) and attracted a number of gold diggers. Two years later, the territory of Montana was created, to which the first ranchers, who kept large herds of horses on the vast plains in the east, began to move.
The local Indian tribes fought hard against the invaders to save their hunting grounds. The Sioux and Chechens in particular became legendary, as did the battlefields on which they achieved their last victories: Little Bighorn (1876) in northeast Montana and the Bighole Basin (1877) in southwest Montana. Shortly afterwards, however, they were defeated by United States troops, which opened the way for white settlers.
As the Native American population dwindled, settlers turned their attention from gold to large reserves of copper. The supply of open land triggered a wave of immigration from Scandinavia after 1909, but a severe drought in the 1920s destroyed many new farmers.
The basis of Montana’s economy is agriculture and mining. The main crops are wheat, barley and sugar beet. Cattle breeding is important. In addition to copper, lead, silver, phosphates and other minerals are mined. The growing number of visitors is attracted by unspoiled nature and monuments of historical battles.
