February 14th is not just Valentine’s Day, it is also the date that Oregon joined the United States.  Oregon became a state in the Union in 1859.  It was agreed that it would be a non-slave state to prevent regional conflicts that would begin the Civil War the next year and a half.  At the time, all white men were allowed to vote:  other minorities were excluded—including women.  The document for statehood was voted on in Salem, the state capitol.  Our state animal is the beaver, our state flower is the Oregon Grape, and our state bird is the Western Meadow Lark. Our state motto is “She flies with her own wings.”  Our State tree is the Douglas fir.  Our state fruit is the pear, and our state drink is—you guessed it: Milk.   We even have a state nut (the hazelnut) and a state dance: the square dance. Happy Birthday, beautiful Oregon!
