A Brief History Of Nebraska is a story of conditional change, the back story of the place and people we know today. Nebraska has been inundated by ancient seas, carved by glaciers, and settled by ancient cultures who learned to survive in a land prone to extremes of climates.
As a state, Nebraska was born out of the Civil War, shaped by railroads and built by immigrants. Settlers were drawn by promise of free land and an abundance of rain. They endured droughts and economic depressions. They fought for political reforms, fought world wars, and sometimes fought each other. Along the way Nebraskans chose unique from of government and re-invited their communities under new conditions.
Read about that and so much more in the pages of A Brief History of Nebraska.
