— Explorer, Pathmarker, Mapper of the Oregon Trail —

Atop Rockland Cemetery lies the grave of he whose exploration in the 1840s opened the way west for countless settlers, who issued the first Emancipation Proclamation and who saved the west for the Union in 1861.

From the ashes of his campfires have sprung cities.
