There really is no founder of Nevada per se. Nevada is a harsh,arid state that was on the route to California and the Pacificcoast by the famous wagon trains of people emigrating to the west. The first settlement in Nevada was Genoa, at the base of the SierraNevada. It was settled by group of Mormo…n settlers who built it upas a fortress to defend against attacks from the local Indiantribes. The United States later sent in its Cavalry and established a forton the Truckee River about 20 miles east of the California. Thecaptain's name was Reno and the fort became known as Fort Reno,later shortened to Reno when it became a town. A few years later,silver was discovered in Virginia City which set off a silver rushand boom expansion of that sleepy little mining town. Over time,more forts, and more towns began to spring up around water sourcesand mining sites. Virginia City's silver mines were world famous and fabulously rich.In 1844 Nevada became a state because of the value of its silvermines. However, during the Civil War, the North became increasinglyconcerned that the South would commandeer the silver mines to fundtheir side of the war. So, the North set off explosives and floodedthe mines. The mines were shut down and to this day, the minesremain flooded. By then, water supplies had been developed that allowed for athriving ranching industry, especially with a surprising number ofsmall rivers that flowed down through the mountains. Today,gambling, mining, and ranching are Nevada's largest industries. (MORE)
