NATIONAL WYOMING DAY

Also known as The Equality State, Wyoming territory led the nation and the world in granting women the right to vote.

Twenty years later, Wyoming would approve the first state constitution including women’s suffrage. They would be granted statehood in 1870.

Wyoming A Photographic Journey

by Kyle Spradley (Author)

In a vast open country where homesteaders had to rely on one another, man or woman, equality had real meaning, true grit.

Depending on the day or its mood it can do either, or both. Explore the Native American legends surrounding the creation of the monolith, hike its trails and wonder at its existence.

NATIONAL IDAHO DAY

On May 17, National Idaho Day recognizes the 43rd state to join the union.

Idaho: The Gem State (2) (State Pride)

Idaho doesn’t lack scenery. Take any byway, and the next turn will reveal a whole new vista to observe. For example, Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve will seem to erupt before your eyes. This vast lava field formed from ancient volcanic activity.

While exploring Idaho, don’t forget to investigate Hagerman’s Fossil Beds. Excavations of these well-preserved fossils have fascinated paleontologists for generations. If there is an equine interest, be sure to study the Hagerman Horse, too!

Beyond the fossils, entire cityscapes of stone appear. The City of Rocks encountered by native peoples, pioneers and modern-day adventurers became a kind of waystation or landmark for those who were westward bound.

NATIONAL WASHINGTON DAY

On May 10, National Washington Day recognizes The Evergreen State.

In a ten-day period, President Benjamin Harrison signed legislation growing the nation by four new states. Washington would become the fourth of those and the 42nd state. During his tenure, two more would join the union.

by Lonely Planet  (Author), Becky Ohlsen (Author)

The state’s history is filled with battles for possession over land. Some between countries and others for between individuals. The history of San Juan Island and the battle for its possession started over the death of a pig. While still a territory, Washington came to near blows over an eager settler, a boundary and a potato-rooting English boar. Today it is known as the Pig War of 1859.

by Harry Ritter (Author)

Obscure wars aside, Washington’s northwest beauty is dominated by other more earthshattering events and views.  Volcanic mountains and rainforests fill the landscape. The Evergreen State’s views of the Pacific Ocean do not disappoint. From whale watching and city life, there is plenty to see and do in every corner of the state.

Some of the most peaceful and quiet places in the United States are found in Olympic National Park. One Square Inch of Silence helps to preserve and hopefully expand these naturally silent spaces on Earth. One location is marked by a single red stone along the Hoh River Trail.

If we look up, big sky country is there day or night. The northern lights dazzle and dance at night and during the day, an azure blue paints the dome above us. But, it’s also the Yellowstone region of the states known for the big sky, its geysers, hot springs, mountain views and the most entrances into the park.

Travel east and back in time to the June of 1876 and the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Visit Custer National Cemetery; learn about the people who joined in the battle that day.

It’s easy to become distracted in Montana. The breathtaking mountain views alone can make one forget why they left the room. Glacier National Park, for example, is a treasure worth seeing. Called the Crown of the Continent, one of its greatest natural resources is a dark night sky.

One thing is for sure when it comes to Montana is its people. Whether you’re seeking dinosaurs, the history of Blackfeet or Nez Pierce, a real working ranch, the people of Montana are as genuine as the land they live on.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Celebrate the 41st state to join the union. Explore the history and people of Montana. Follow the trails of the pioneers and visit all the treasures this great has to offer.

NATIONAL SOUTH DAKOTA DAY

On April 26, National South Dakota Day recognizes the 40th state to join the union.

The Mount Rushmore State keeps its doors open all year round. After exploring the mountain, visitors can also enjoy Thomas Jefferson‘s vanilla ice cream while gazing at his likeness. And these sculptures are not the only ones South Dakota proudly displays, either. While there are several man-made displays, Wind Cave, the Missouri River, and the badlands remind us that mother nature still carves out her own.

As part of the Corps of Discovery, Lewis and Clark established Fort Pierre in 1804. Yankton was named the territorial capital in 1861 when the Dakota Territory was organized. However, Pierre would later be named the state capital when South Dakota is granted statehood in 1889 along with North Dakota.

The entire state is rich in history from corner to corner. The landscape changes dramatically from north to south with plenty of snow for skiers in winter and tons of sunshine in the summer.

This is also where the term black hills gold comes from. It refers to some of the original mining in this area. Most of us know it as jewelry made with yellow, rose and green golds.

NATIONAL NORTH DAKOTA DAY

On April 19th, National North Dakota Day recognizes the Peace Garden State.

Long before Lewis and Clark traveled up the Missouri River, the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara arrived in North Dakota. During the Corps of Discovery, the team camped at Fort Mandan along the Missouri River for the winter. Here, their translators, Sacagawea and Charbonneau, joined the expedition. Sacagawea would also give birth to her son, Jean Baptiste.

As the settlement expanded, disputes over land increased. Fort Abraham Lincoln preserves the home of Gen. George and Libby Custer, the military commissary, blockhouses, and the Mandan Indian Village along the Missouri River.

Theodore Roosevelt arrived in North Dakota in 1883 and fell in love with badlands and outdoor life. He would later be elected the 26th U.S. President and served from 1901 to 1909. His love of the badlands led to his conservation and preservation efforts.  The North Dakota Badlands are named Theodore Roosevelt National Park in his name.

I have always said I would not have been President had it not been for my experience in North Dakota. ~

Theodore Roosevelt

In the heart of the badlands…

In the heart of the badlands, Medora came to life and today recreates the western life with entertainment in an outdoor amphitheater. Visit the Cowboy Hall of Fame and so much more in Medora.

When statehood crested the horizon, South Dakota was also in line for admission. President Benjamin Harrison signed the bills at random, and nothing was recorded indicating which bill was endorsed first.

However, due to alphabetical order, North Dakota is listed as the 39th state to be admitted to the union.
Beyond historical sites, North Dakota boasts a healthy amount of scenic byways. Kayak down the Pembina Gorge or visit the International Peace Gardens.

Garrison Dam is the fifth largest earthen dam in the world and Lake Sakakawea‘s year-round fishing and recreation is an angler’s dream. At night, the skies reveal stars never seen before, and the Northern Lights dance with delight.

North Dakota is also home to National Calendar, #CelebrateEveryDay! As the home of National Day Calendar in Mandan, North Dakota, it’s our favorite place to be!

NATIONAL TITANIC REMEMBRANCE DAY

Each year on April 15th, National Titanic Remembrance Day is dedicated to the memory of the lives lost when the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean in April 1912. We remember the more than 1,500 people who died that day.

Known as the “the unsinkable ship,” the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm on April 14, 1912, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City. Later, in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, on April 15, the Titanic sank.  Those who perished did so mainly due to an insufficient number of lifeboats onboard the ship.

There have been a few movies made about this subject, too, most recently Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
