One of the stories he’ll tell will be about how — in the 1830s and 1840s — the United States was prepared to wage war on Great Britain about a disputed territory boundary.

“Hamm will share information from newspapers, woodcuts, accurate and inaccurate maps, and early photographs, telling stories ranging from the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-06) to the Lewis and Clark Exposition (1905).”

For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
