The library has many U.S. Western States. These primary source materials are invaluable to historians. Townships, boundary disputes, land claims, water rights, politics, courts and lawyers, Indian Wars, military affairs, and social development, manners, morals and customs are all represented in unaccustomed detail. Developments of a county, territory, state, commercial practices, manufacturing methods, accounts of cattle drives, ship movements from major ports, even the price of bacon, whiskey and fabric may be documented in these reels.
