History
The land that now forms the state of Oregon has been inhabited by humans since at least 15,000 years. Indegenous tribes have been known to inhabit the area before European settlers arrived. The first European country to do so was Spain in 1543. The land thus became a place en route to carry out trade with Asia.

The powers fought over the land till finally it was ceded to the U.S. in 1846. It became a full-fledged state on 14th February 1859. The state had a “whites only” clause in its constitution as it was founded in the process of whites seeking a land in refuge to disputes over slavery. During the Civil War, the state was protected with the help of voluntary recruits from California.

Geography
Oregon is usually split into eight areas. These are Oregon coast, Rogue Valley, Willamette Valley, Cascade mountains, Columbia River Plateau, Klamath Mountains, Blue Mountains, and Oregon Outback. The western part of Oregon is mountaneous and home to Mount Hood and other prominent mountain peaks in the U.S.

The Columbia river is found in the northern part of Oregon and has played a prominent part in the geological evolution of the nearby land. The landscape of Oregon is thus as diverse as rain forests and deserts.
