Oregon, the 33rd state is nicknamed the “Beaver State”. This nickname originated in the mid-19th century when the trading of fur pelts became quite lucrative. The route the traders followed was called the “Oregon Trail”. Beaver pelts were made into beautiful and stylish hats and coats. The nature of the beaver pelt is the resistance of water. The Native Americans welcomed the traders into the area for it increased their opportunity of trading. Unfortunately, the European traders brought diseases which devastated the tribes. The territory ownership of the Oregon Territory was in question for years as both the British and the United States laid their own claim. These boundary disputes continued for years until a final peace treaty was reached called the Oregon Treaty. Two years later Oregon became a state. The Civil War removed the soldiers who kept the peace within Oregon State. This took the troops to Virginia to the heart of most gruesome hand to hand combat. While the troops were all the way across the country, the Native Americans were being forced to move onto reservations. For years of the settlers encroaching on their land, the tension of competing for food and water had taken its toll on the Native Americans and fighting began. They called this the “Snake War”. The Natives were at war with miners, the settlers, and anyone who continued to cross their land. The greed of the pioneers and miners created more and more tension.

This was not a notorious war but is said to be the bloodiest and most loss to the Native American tribes on the west coast.
