This colorful and fascinating collection documents the story of Washington Territory—when it was the "new land north of the Columbia River—all the way to today's NASA landsat map of the State of Washington. New Land North of the Columbia features an 1860 letter protesting the escape of an Olympia slave to Victoria on the Puget Sound Underground Railroad. There's also territorial Governor Pickering's telegram to Abraham Lincoln sent on the brand-new telegraph—and Lincoln's hand-signed response. And we have much more: posters and letters that support and condemn women’s right to vote, prohibition of the sale of alcohol, and aid to the unemployed during the Great Depression. Here are documents about the massive, secret Hanford Engineering Works that was Washington's Manhattan Project. The book includes an ad for the first Lame Fest concert featuring Mudhoney and Nirvana, the original box that contained Windows 95, and a poster calling all protesters to the 1999 WTO conference. Historian Lorraine McConaghy has traversed the state and sifted through the files of three dozen archives to cull the 400+ documents that bring to life Washington's last 150 years.

Dr. Lorraine McConaghy is the historian at the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle. She is the author of numerous monographs and several books, including Warship Under Sail. She is the recipient of the Robert Gray Medal for distinguished contributions to Pacific Northwest history by the Washington Historical Society. She teaches at the University of Washington, where she received her doctorate.
