Gregory Nokes presents

Peter Burnett: Oregon Pioneer and First Governor of California

Saturday August 11th at 6:30 pm

We welcome the return of Oregon author Greg Nokes with his book The Troubled Life of Peter Burnett: Oregon Pioneer and First Governor of California. Peter Burnett helped organize the first major wagon train to the Oregon Country, where he served on Oregon’s first elected government. He opened a wagon road from Oregon to California. As a former slaveholder, he could never seem to get beyond his single-minded goal of banning blacks and other minorities from the West.  Please join us as Greg shares the history of this early pioneer.
