It Happened in Montana

Section 5

The first Montana legislative assem- bly convened at Bannack. The meet- ing was not held in a bastion of con- crete, stone and marble; but rather in a cold log cabin with a dirt floor. They practiced the democratic prin- ciples of a country they were yet to be a part of as they huddled around a wood stove. The meeting was not without dissension. When Governor B. F. White called the meeting to order, he told the elected officials that they needed to recite the oath of allegiance to the United States. Most didn't hesitate to do so, but three vociferously disagreed. One, a man named Rogers, resigned rather than take the oath. Interestingly, Montanans have always been some of the most fiercely independent cit- izens of any state in the union. They are also the first to answer the call to defend our freedoms. They consis- tently send a higher percentage of their population to war than any other U. S. state.
