Fur trappers worked in the region as early as the 1740s. Acquired as a portion of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, Lewis and Clark explored the area in 1805. The region offered American fur traders a profitable business and the discovery of gold in the 1850s and 1860s led to the rapid settlement of mining camps. Montana was the scene of General George Custer's defeat by the Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at Little Big Horn in 1876. The state was formed from the Montana Territory, created in 1864.

1742-Explored by the Verendrye brothers for France 1847-Permanently settled by Americans 1889-Admitted to the Union as the 41st state.
