The State of Jefferson (Then and Now) 


As early as 1852, the hardy settlers of the self -proclaimed State of Jefferson began to rally against the California and Oregon governments. The autonomous and determined spirit of border-county residents perseveres today, and nowhere is this better evidenced than in the character of the communities that remain.

    For history buffs, this volume is a unique collection of photos of the mythical State of Jefferson, the area between Oregon and California. Lots of people don't know that this was a real historical movement, and the people even declared themselves a state, right before Pearl Harbor. A fun look at the history of the movement that started in the 1850s. Some of the photos I enjoyed most were the old ones of the miners and local Shasta tribe and the old towns. Some great ones of Mt. Shasta and old roads and bridges. It makes a great gift for someone who has everything and likes to read, especially history. I highly recommend this book! Lots of fun. I'd love to see a sequel.
