Featured Facts

Montana’s history began long before being admitted to the Union on November 8, 1889, as the 41st American state.  Nicknamed the Treasure State and later the Big Sky Country, many people and events helped to shape its future.

Some interesting facts about Montana:

  • Yogo sapphires, which are known for their clear, cornflower-blue color, are only mined in Montana.
  • Montana’s meaning is rooted in Spanish–it means “land of mountains.”
  • Ironically, only about one-third of the state is mountainous.  The remaining two-thirds consist of primarily prairie grasslands.

Many political figures from Montana made history far beyond its borders.  In the election of 1916, Jeannette Rankin (1880-1973) was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.  She became the first woman ever elected to Congress.

Mike Mansfield (1903-2001) represented Montana in the U.S. Senate from 1953 to 1977.  He also served as Senate Majority Leader from 1961-1977, which is the longest tenure ever.

Answer to Brain Teaser Question

None of these.  The fifth daughter is Bonnie herself.
