Overview

Nine noted regional and national experts here explore Washington's coming of age. Essays delve into the frustration of territorial residents with the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, Washington's struggle for statehood, the state's constitutional convention, suffragist Abigail Scott Duniway's fight for women's rights, and the role of the Hanford nuclear reservation in American history. Former governor and senator Daniel J. Evans, political correspondent Lou Cannon, and Gordon Hirabayashi, who protested the World War II internment of Japanese Americans in a highly publicized legal case, provide their personal reflections upon recent state history. Washington Comes of Age continues the Washington State University Press's Pettyjohn series of publications examining essential aspects of Pacific Northwest history.
