New Land, North of the Columbia; Historic Documents that Tell the Story of Washington State from Territory to Today, by Lorraine McConaghy

"In 1852, an editorial ran in the Olympia Columbian urging Congress to separate the land north of the Columbia River from the Oregon Territory to form Washington Territory. That "new land" eventually became the place we call Washington State.

Historian Lorraine McConaghy has sifted through the holdings of countless archives and libraries across the state to cull the materials for this document history of Washington, from territory to today. The result is a colorful and wholly engaging display of maps, public documents, correspondence, obituaries, photographs, drawings, and even menus that trace the story of how life has been lived in this northwest corner of the country over the pas 150 years."
