Mission Statement: The 1910 Expedition
2. To increase the resolution of the historical record: As we add the stories and documents of the lives of individual Montanans to the historical record, the picture we see becomes more clear and detailed. Nuances and subtleties that may not yet be visible to historians will come into view.
3. To increase public access to historical materials: In creating a virtual expedition to 1910 on the internet, we will digitize and put online a wealth of historical materials to make this time period accessible to all who are interested.
4. To encourage and support young people in learning the historian's craft: By providing an opportunity to make a genuine contribution to the gathering and writing of Montana's history, along with training and recognition both for teachers and students, we will introduce secondary students to the methods and the pleasures of historical research.
