Washington Territory's first governor remains as controversial today as he was to his frontier contemporaries during the Pacific Northwest's most turbulent era--the mid-1850s. Indian wars, martial law, and bitter political disputes, as well as the establishment of a new governmental system, characterized Isaac I. Stevens' years as governor (1853-57).  By Kent D. Richards.
