Transcript of Alaska Presentation

"North to the future"
Motto
History
Alaska was the 49th state to join the United States.
Many settlers came with the expectation that the territory would follow the path of the western states to official state status.
In 1940, 1,000 of the 75,000 people were in the military.
The Klondike Gold Rush of 1897 to 1898, was the first event to garner significant exposure for the Great White North.
Alaska was just too remote to inspire much interest.
