Lovely, poignant essay. Thank you, Jack.

Many thanks Jim!

A sidebar to this history, in 1864 Congress offered statehood to Colorado, Nebraska, and Nevada territories. Colorado voted for territory status over statehood. Nebraska couldn't agree on a Constitution. Only Nev. met the requirements for statehood at this time. ( A Republican Congress hoped these proposed states would vote for Lincoln in the 1864 Presidential election.)

A fascinating sidebar, WRT. Thanks for sharing.

Well done, touching and appropriate. Thank you.
