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. See Montana abbreviation.
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.
Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail
Between 1804 and 1806 there was an expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to explore the Missouri River and its tributaries. The expedition was approved by the then president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, and a total of 33 men took part in it, of which 25 were volunteers.
The goal was to see if the Columbia, Oregon, and Colorado rivers offered any practical, direct water route across the continent. The expedition thus followed the path to the Pacific, while traveling more than 8,000 miles. Preparations for this journey had been going on since the spring of 1803. The entire expedition finally set off on the expedition on May 14, 1804, from the Camp Wood camp near the Wood River in the state of Illinois. Already in August of the same year, the expedition reached Nebraska and South Dakota. However, problems began in North Dakota, where the temperature reached a freezing -40°C and the group had to set up camp for the winter.
The expedition continued towards the Pacific Ocean and on the way she often met native Indians who helped her in many ways. Clark once helped a young Native American girl give birth to a son, and that would come back to him a hundred times in the future. The Shoshone Indians were very grateful and helped the expedition cross the Rockies. In August 1805, they therefore reached Montana, where they learned from the Indians how to make dugout canoes. They were thus able to navigate the Clearwater and Columbia Rivers and on November 24, 1805, they finally found themselves on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
With the coming of winter, they were forced to build another winter camp. They placed it near an Indian tribe called Clatsop, and a fort of the same name was later built at this location. Everyone got through the winter in order, because it was completely classic and almost all of it rained. As soon as it warmed up a bit and spring began to arrive, the expedition set off on its return journey. On September 23, 1806, a group of adventurers returned home to St. Louis as heroes.
This expedition made a significant mark in the history of America and is considered a deed that changed the face of the country. Thanks to her, it was possible to find out that the desired northwest route, along which it would be possible to transport cargo by water from the center of America to the west coast, unfortunately does not exist. One of its participants died during the expedition, but it could still be considered very successful. All other members completed it and returned home safely.
Another reason why this expedition was undertaken was to obtain the center of the continent for America. The English occupied the territory from the north and the Spanish from the south. Therefore, the center of the continent could only belong to the one who thoroughly explores it and thus obtains it for his land.
