Part 2: "Settling a nation"
November, 2006 marked the Bureau of Land Management's 60th anniversary as a multiple-use, land management agency. Created by Congress in 1946, BLM's roots go back to 1812 with establishment of the General Land Office -- and even further back to the creation of the United States. Join us for this second in a series of video slide shows revealing BLM's history.
