Fremont also lends his name to one of the main drags in Las Vegas, NV...Fremont Street. I guess he was pretty much all over the place in the mountain west region.

True confession here. I tend to follow more closely the generals, campaigns and battles that impacted areas where I have lived or visited. That's why I haven't read so much about Fremont. It is mostly a lack of time to do him justice. It certainly isn't because I don't think he is worth my time. As you know, Susan, so many books--so little time.:D
