Washington Territory


Category: History: U.S.: Northwest


Robert E Ficken


Copyright/published Year: 2002 by WSU Press


ISBN: 0-87422-261-3


Binding: Paper

Established in 1853, Washington remained a Territory for 36 years until admitted into the Union in 1889. Divided by the Cascade Range and lacking an effective internal transportation system, Washington Territory made no practical sense as a political and economic entity until railroads finally unified the region in the mid 1880s. Ficken's Washington Territory will long serve as the definitive economic and political history of territorial Washington.

Robert E. Ficken of Issaquah, Washington, is the author of numerous books and articles about the Pacific Northwest.
