The Land Remembers: Photographs Inspired by the Rogue River Wars

Date: 
Tuesday, April 7, 2020 - 7:00pm
Between 1851 and 1856 the hills, valleys and coastline of Southern Oregon witnessed one of the bloodiest conflicts between Native Americans and the combined forces of the U.S. Army and local militia west of the Mississippi. Fighting festered and flared up multiple times over those five years, a period marked by the sudden influx of miners chasing the gold discoveries of 1850, as well as pioneer settlers answering the call of the Donation Land Claim Act of that same year.
 
Over the last three years photographer Rich Bergeman has explored hundreds of miles of back roads in the Rogue River Country, from Mt. McLoughlin to Gold Beach in search of places where one of the bloodiest and longest-running wars in Oregon's history raged in the 1850s
