Steve F. Russell

This is a transcribed copy of the microfilm records of the Virginia City and Lewiston Wagon Road project of 1865-1870 by the federal government. Wellington Bird was the project supervisor and disbursing agent and George Benson Nicholson was the civil engineer. This project attempted to build a wagon road from Lewiston, Idaho to Virginia City but only succeeded in building a good trail, to a wagon road grade, from Weippe, Idaho to Lolo Pass, Montana-Idaho. The microfilm records contains both reports and letters.
