A newer world Kit Carson, John C. Frémont, and the claiming of the American West

John C. Fremont, nearly forgotten today, was one of the giants of nineteenth-century America. He led five expeditions into the American West in the 1840s and 1850s, covering a greater area than any other explorer. His expedition reports--ghost-written by his beautiful and talented wife, Jessie Benton Fremont-- were bestsellers in their day. Riding the wave of his popularity, he captured the Republican Party nomination for president in 1856 but narrowly lost the election.
