Carrie Meyer talked about the Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition, which showcased the developed West from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Coast. Business and community leaders from 24 states and territories west of the Mississippi River envisioned the exposition as a way to revitalize the regional economy and to show that the West had recovered from the financial panic of 1893

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Omaha, Nebraska, from May 7-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
