MAKING THE CASE FOR SIGNIFICANCE & INTEGRITY

Making the Case For Significance & Integrity

"Tiering" refers to the coverage of general matters and processes identified in the broader paper Making The Case For Significance & Integrity (i.e., framework for others to independently develop Trail research papers addressing the 17 questions posed by the Oregon-California Trails Assocation to help make the case for Applegate Trail significance and integrity) with subsequent narrower papers (such as papers entitled Naming The Applegate Trail; Significant Users Of Applegate Trail And Significant People Associated With Developing The Military Road; United States Military Wagon Road From Myrtle Creek to Camp Stuart: 1853 - 1880, Myrtle Creek To Camp Stuart Military Road From Congressional Records, Including Secretary Of War Reports, and others) incorporating by reference the general discussions of the Making The Case For Significance & Integrity paper, and concentrating solely on the issues specific to the papers subsequently prepared.

To be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, the case has to be made for the Applegate Trail's historic significance and historic integrity that converys that significance.  Thorough and convincing answers to the following 17 questions can help make the case for Applegate Trail significance and integrity.
