About this Item

Original sewn wrappers. Untrimmed. From Wikipedia: "Senator Benton';s greatest concern was the territorial expansion of the United States to meet its 'manifest destiny'.(He) was instrumental in the sole administration of the Oregon Territory. Since the Anglo-American Convention of 1818, Oregon had been jointly occupied by the United States and the United Kingdom. Benton pushed on Oregon and the Canadian border favorable to the United States. The current border at the 49th Parallel set by the Oregon Treaty in 1846 was his choice." 6 1/4 x 10 inches. 39 pages.
