Mandan, District, is a territory of the United
States, included between the British Possessions on the n.,
Wisconsin ter. on the e., the Indian ter. on the s., of which
the n. fork of Platte r. may be considered the boundary, and the
Rocky Mountains, separating it from Oregon ter., on the w. It
contains about 300,000 square ms., being about 520 ms. from n.
to s., and 600 from e. to w. This extensive region has been but
imperfectly explored. The surface is chiefly an elevated plain,
or table land, consisting of vast prairies, on which large herds
of the bison, elk, and deer, range; and though the soil is
generally light and thin, it affords abundant grass and herbage
for their support, and it is undoubtedly capable of supporting
an equal number of domestic cattle. The principal rivers are the
Missouri and Yellow Stone, with their numerous branches,
including their sources. The largest branch of the Yellow Stone
is the Big Horn, which rises in the s. w. part of the ter. The
source of the Missouri in this ter. is about 3,100 ms. above its
junction with the Mississippi, in about 43° 30' n. lat. Within
about ¼ of a mile from this point are found the head waters of
the N. branch of Lewis's r., which flows into the Columbia r.
The principal elevations E. of the Rocky Mountains are the Black
hills, covered with shrubby cedars, which commence in the s.
part of the ter., extending n. e. The most interesting feature
of this region is the capacity which it affords for a pass and a
road across the Rocky Mountains. It appears that all the points
of departure are situated in the vicinity of the Black hills,
between the 43d and the 45th parallels of latitude; and that
among these passes across the mountains, there is one, and
probably but one, sufficiently gradual in its ascents and
descents, and sufficiently open, to admit of the passage of
wheel carriages, and consequently of the ready construction of a
convenient and good road. This pass goes through an opening in
the Black hills, at about 44° 30' n. lat., and, keeping between
these hills and Big Horn Mountain, it crosses the tributaries of
the Yellow Stone from the s., and finally the Yellow Stone
itself. It then crosses the Missouri, or rather the three forks
of that r., a short distance above their junction, from whence
it pursues a southwestwardly direction, until arriving at the
head waters of Bitter Root r.; thence down the valley of this
r., to its junction with the Salmon, or Lewis's r., and thence
down the valley of this last r., to its junction with the
Columbia. The point of departure abovementioned is about 650 ms.
northwestwardly from the Council Bluffs, on the Missouri; and
the direction of that r., for 300 ms., is nearly parallel with
the route above described, and the Missouri would afford the
means of transportation for 300 miles, from the Council Bluffs,
on the route. A future day may witness a good road across the
Rocky Mountains along this interesting route.
The principal aboriginal tribes of
Mandan district are the Pawnees, Riccarees, Crows, Blackfeet
Indians, &c. They own horses in abundance, and on them pursue
the bison and transport their baggage from place to place; and
many of them are very expert horsemen. A greater part of this
region is destitute of timber; but as the rivers descend toward
the e., trees extensively skirt their borders. The Mandan
Indians, who formerly inhabited a part of this territory, were
mostly exterminated by the smallpox in 1837; and those who
remained have become united with other tribes. To perpetuate
their memory, their name has been attached to the district.
