William Cronon et al. New York, , 28—51 points to similar conclusions about the copper mining frontier in Alaska.

Whitney, before the Legislature of Pennsylvania.
Harrisburg, PA, , a similar address was given to the Alabama Legislature in In these capacities, Stevens initiated a pair of related activities that, through an odd combination of accident and design, would effectively produce a mining frontier in the northern mountain region. The first effort was to begin a northern Pacific railroad survey on his way into the new territory to take up his post as governor in , and the second was to launch a series of Indian councils in , at which he acquired title for the lands of the region from the Indian groups that lived there.
Combined, these projects reveal the enormous effort, and ultimately the enormous expense, that was necessary to create a gold mining frontier in the northern mountains. Mullan showed both practicality and creativity when he abandoned the quantitative data-gathering 22 White, ed. For the Gold Fields, 2—4 and Kent D. Richards, Isaac I. Stevens, 93—, — Kent Curtis methods that had been used by the Stevens team in for the more qualitative anthropological approach of interviewing Indians and trappers about possible routes.
News Figure 3. Catalog To this end, between May and October , Stevens presided over three Indian councils at which he acquired, to the satisfaction of United States law, 24 Ibid. Through coercion, outright deception, and threats of violence when all else failed, Stevens managed to get signatures on treaty documents in Walla Walla, Council Grove Missoula , and at the Judith River that rendered most of the lands between Fort Benton and Fort Walla Walla the fee simple property of the United States of America.
In return for their agreement to the provisions of the treaties, tribes were promised the delivery of quarterly provisions and cash payments from the United States government. By the end of , on paper at least, the northern Rocky Mountains were poised to be opened for road construction as soon as the United States Congress ratified the agreements.
Knowledge of the treaties encouraged gold seekers to move into the region along the western front of the Rocky Mountains, creating a sudden flare up of violence between gold seekers and the Indians who did not want them there. A military-enforced truce closed off these lands to whites in and , but this was not enough to allay the fears and resentment that had been building among the Columbia Basin Native groups.
By , the fact that the tribes had received none of the provisions promised to them by the Stevens treaties and the unsettling rumors that a military road was being planned through the heart of their territory—a fact that Stevens had neglected to mention dur- ing treaty negotiation in —led to a growing and increasingly violent resistance. The Indians became everywhere bold, defiant, and insulting. Unaware of the level of hostility and anger brewing among the Indians, Major Edward Steptoe led a small detachment 25 Louis C.
Montreal, , 9; Clifford E. Trafzer, ed. Stevens, — A copy of the treaties signed by the various tribes in can be found in Charles J. Kappler, ed. Schlicke, General George Wright: Kent Curtis of soldiers up the Snake River Valley to try to recover some supplies that had been stolen by the Indians. As Steptoe and his men made their way up the narrow canyons of the western Snake River Valley, they found themselves suddenly surrounded and significantly overpowered by an estimated 1, Indians.
While several of his men were killed in the initial assault, including his second in command, Captain Oliver Taylor, Steptoe, and most of his men managed eventually to escape by sneaking away in the night.
By late August, his units were finally assembled, including, not incidentally, Captain John Mullan. Armed with long-range rifles and mountain howitzers, Wright and his forces began their march from Fort Walla Walla up the Snake River Valley. Beginning on 2 September and lasting several days, Wright and his forces marched upon and engaged two encampments of Indians at Four Lakes and Spokane Plains, fighting in pitched battles, killing dozens of Indians, and losing none of their own men.
The overwhelming firepower and bloodshed quickly subdued the Columbia Basin tribes, who then asked for a peace treaty. But the battlefield deaths were not enough to satisfy Colonel Wright. In the same year, the Senate also ratified all of the treaties creating the legal foundation—at least in the eyes of United States jurisprudence—for the legitimate occupation of the northern mountain region and the legal construction of a military road through it.
Mullan set to work immediately, gathering a team of one hundred soldiers, one hundred laborers, and thirty officers and artisans to assist him in the construction efforts along the route he had identified four years earlier. In late June , this large contingency of road builders began the slow work of grading roadways and building bridges from Walla Walla toward Fort Benton.
The ratification of the treaties with the northern Indians and the appropriation of adequate road construction funds, both coming in the wake of the bloody defeat of the Columbia Basin Indians, set in motion a domino effect of 27 Schlicke, General George Wright, —96; Robert M.
With the threat of Indian hos- tilities along the western front of the Rocky Mountains removed, gold seekers found access unimpeded from the west and began making their way in significant numbers into the creeks along the tributaries to the Snake River, opening well-paying gold diggings along the Clearwater River.
The following year, pushing farther south and east into the mountains, gold seekers found even higher paying gold diggings along the Salmon River, which were stampeded in early by a large contingency of gold seekers who had wintered that year at Fort Walla Walla. Shortly after Henry Thomas quit his claim on Gold Creek, successful miners began trickling their way east across the Mullan Wagon Road through the northern mountains toward Fort Benton with their gold.
The news of these new mining districts spread quickly back east and seemed to have had a particular pull on the frustrated gold miners of the Pikes Peak gold rush in Colorado, who began streaming out of that region toward Florence and the Salmon River diggings in the late fall of , as well as drawing men from Missouri hoping to escape the sectional violence of the Civil War.
In , the military subsidized two steamers, the Chippewa and the Key West, to carry three hundred soldiers and Major George A.
Blake, who were going to be the first military forces to march over the Mullan Road route on their way to new posts in the Pacific Northwest that summer.
These boats also carried provisions for Captain Mullan and his road crew, and, because of higher water from a heavier spring snowmelt, both boats made it all the way to the docks at Fort Benton that year. Despite the eruption of the Civil War in April of that year, the military interest in the region continued in Kent Curtis east of Fort Benton when its cargo of twenty-five kegs of gunpowder was accidentally ignited by a deckhand trying to steal whiskey.

They also carried almost one hundred paying passengers each, many of whom had brought supplies that they intended to haul across the Mullan Road to the western slope gold fields. The La Barge Company raised the prospect of commercial competition for upper Missouri traffic, which quickly expanded beyond the basic needs of Indian trade, fur hunters, and military provisions to include the needs of settlement and mining, and relatively luxurious service of passenger transportation.

Colonel James L. Fisk, a flamboyant and obsessive promoter of the northern route was pulled from his Civil War duties in Tennessee to provide the escort for the wagon team. But before Fisk could return to St. Paul, a swelling group of emigrants who had gathered in anticipation of the wagon train reached a critical mass and decided to wait no longer.
This group would organize into a formal company and elect a man named Thomas Holmes to the leadership role. James L.
Fisk finally got another party organized in late June and arrived with an additional Minnesotans at Fort Benton at the end of September. Between them, the overland parties from St. Paul brought dozens of gold seekers.

New York, , 1: Fort Benton, Montana. Benton II steamboat in left corner, During the late spring and summer months following adequate snowfall , Fort Benton, Montana represented the highest point of navigation on the Missouri River.
From here, in the early s, men fanned west and south into the mountains in search of paying gold mines. Two significant and necessary conditions preceded the frontier, making the ap- propriate social and economic space for the onset of a gold rush. The first was adequate or at least the belief in adequate market connections into the region.
Gold rushes and the practice of gold mining are not self-sufficient economic activites.
They produce, when successful, gold in abundance, but in order for miners to live in the region, they needed access to provisions—food, clothing, shelter, and mining tools. For the Gold Fields, 23— Kent Curtis because mining laborers were instant consumers.
The second necessary condition was adequate protection or at least the belief and appearance of adequate protection from other claimants to the landscape. A gold rush and the practice of gold mining use the landscape in specific and predictable ways, requiring hours of continuous hard labor in creek beds and gulches, requiring certainty that this work can occur uninterrupted by threats, violence, alternative claims to the land, or other forms of obstruction.
In the case of the northern Rockies, this meant, first and foremost, protection from potentially hos- tile Indians. By the spring and summer of , with the completion of the Mullan Road and the arrival of multiple steamboats, the region suddenly became available as a gold production frontier. And within three years of the first gold production activities at Gold Creek, the entire Northern Rocky region of what had become Montana Territory had been opened and its economic geology had been mapped.
The Native American inhabitants of the northern Rocky Mountain region had been militarily and legally removed from control over the landscape and the regional space had been re-organized into a gold mining frontier.

It was not opened by a gold rush, it was opened for commerce and then a gold rush followed. Five years later, just two weeks after the start of the war with Mexico in , the American consul in California wrote Secretary of State James Buchanan informing him that there were rich gold reserves in the region.
The most provocative narrative can be found in J. Ross Browne and James W. Nor would adequate mining supply routes have been available had they not been opened by the two-year war with Mexico. Supply routes that could deliver war provisions, as the Montana example reveals, can just as well deliver gold rush provisions. Similarly, in the same year that the California gold rush rolled westward, a group of experienced gold miners on their way west from Georgia discovered gold in the creeks of western Kansas future Colorado.
They halted their explorations in for fear of Indian attack and a gold rush to this region would not occur until after the Cheyenne were perceived to have been defeated in , part of a general military campaign in the West that also opened transportation and supply routes.
