State of Jefferson (Images of America Series)

The persistent State of Jefferson movement finally received national attention, including articles in Time and Life magazines, and held a boisterous election of county officials in 1941, before being derailed by the onset and priorities of World War II....

Overview

The State of Jefferson was born in the hearts of pioneers who crossed craggy peaks and treacherous canyons to settle near the Oregon and California border. Isolated and feeling neglected by both state governments, they tried to create a new state as early as 1852. The persistent State of Jefferson movement finally received national attention, including articles in Time and Life magazines, and held a boisterous election of county officials in 1941, before being derailed by the onset and priorities of World War II. But solidarity and independence still run like underground springs in the border counties, where rugged individualism matches the often rugged terrain, and where highway signs, businesses, and even public radio stations proudly display the State of Jefferson name and flag.

    A fun look at the State of Jefferson!

    This is a great little book with lots of photos about the little-known State of Jefferson, that tried to set itself up as a state even in the 1850s, then actually established itself as a state just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Sort of the State that Never Was. I loved the old photos, esp. of the miners, the Native American tribes, and the old towns. Great history for anyone who likes California or Oregon history, or for the person who enjoys trivia and old photographs. Lots of interesting stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to see a sequel!
