. Army Lt. John Mullan was both a trailblazer and eventually a trail maker.Between 1858 and 1862, he organized the construction of the first wagon road to cross the Rockies, binding together the navigable headwaters of the Missouri and Columbia Rivers. When Congress funded it, the road’s name was the Mullan Military Road, running from Fort Walla Walla along the Columbia to Fort Benton on the Missouri River. The roads purpose was tofacilitate the movement of troops and supplies during times of Indian hostilities.
