The history of the northwestern United States is shaped by an understanding of geography (the physical features and processes of the area), the people who have inhabited the area (the Native Americans, explorers, traders, and missionaries), and the events (exploration, immigration, wars, treaties, railroads, and the emergence of the United States). The twentieth century continued to shape the Northwest through growth of industry, immigration, and statehood.
