Geography Makes Idaho Territory Ungovernable, Should be Split

On February 24, 1864, news from proceedings in Washington, D. C. included a note that the Territory of Idaho had petitioned Congress to split the region.

More details on this event have been posted on the blog for Sourdough Publishing. A version of this material also appears in my book, Idaho: Year One – The Territory's First Year.
