An amazing post, I thought when I read it, and definitely worth the time of writers.

In Montana, there was a true War of the Copper Kings. It took place over a century ago, when copper was king and mining was actually profitable in Butte, Montana. However, that time has long since passed and Butte has been in a slow decline for decades. When I was in middle school in Montana, we had to take a semester of Montana history. My mother, who is from Massachusetts, always thought that was strange as she never took Massachusetts’s history. However, I would argue that most children in the U.S. take a mini course on Massachusetts’s history as its history is so central to U.S history.
