Name Washington
Details The State of Washington was admitted to the Union on November 11, 1889, as the 42nd State with much the same boundaries as at present. It extends from Pacific Ocean on the west, to Idaho on the east; and, from Oregon on the south, to the Province of British Columbia on the north. Prior to statehood, it had been a part of Oregon Territory, and later became Washington Territory, including Idaho and part of western Montana. In 1863 and 1864, Idaho and Montana were separated. When organized as a territory on March 2, 1853, the name Columbia was suggested in Congress. Rep. Richard H. Stanton of Kentucky amended the bill by striking out Columbia and inserting Washington, to honor the first President of the United States. At one time, an unsuccessful attempt was made to combine eastern Washington and eastern Oregon under the name, Lincoln.
