Origins of the Frontier and American Western Myth

The American frontier and the Old West have been indelible elements of American culture, history, and even politics. But how did the concept of “The Western” emerge and why has it endured? This presentation will take the audience on a journey to answer those questions, and to learn how the Western still impacts American society — all accompanied by images of America’s past and present.
