Jefferson "Soapy" Smith stands at the bar of his saloon in Skagway, Alaska, shortly before being killed on July 8, 1898. Soapy was a notorious con artist who traveled the American West who died in a shootout over control of Skagway, which had become a major stopover for thousands on their way to the Alaskan gold fields during the Klondike gold rush. #

Stampeders and their outfits in Dyea, Alaska. So many hopeful men (and a few women) were making the difficult journey into the Canadian and Alaskan wilderness in search of gold, the Canadian government started requiring every stampeder bring a year's supply of goods before crossing the border, leading to hundreds of scenes like this. #

Miners and prospectors climb the Chilkoot Trail during the Klondike Gold Rush, in September of 1898. Only about 1 out of 3 would actually make the entire trip successfully, but by the time most of them arrived, nearly every bit of land had already been claimed. #

After the quake. The tremendous earthquake that rocked Anchorage and much of south central Alaska on March 27, 1964, dropped Fourth Avenue and a row of cars some 20 feet below normal level. This street, like others, was left cracked and torn like peanut brittle. The Good Friday earthquake lasted four and half minutes and was a magnitude 9.2, destroying neighborhoods and villages, spawning tsunamis, and left 139 dead. #

An unidentified Inuit poses on October 29, 1970, Alaska. Alaskan natives were looking ahead to what they hoped would be a better deal as a result of their claims on territory and the oil which may be drawn from it. The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act was signed into law by President Richard Nixon on December 18, 1971, giving control of 44 million acres to Alaska Native regional and village corporations. #

Tugboats pull the crippled tanker Exxon Valdez toward Naked Island in Alaska's Prince William Sound, in this April 5, 1989, photo after the ship was pulled from Bligh Reef, where it grounded on March 24, and spilled nearly 11 million gallons of oil into the water. Although a jury originally found Exxon Mobil Corp. liable, and awarded plaintiffs more than $5 billion, Exxon appealed several times, successfully arguing the damages down to $500 million. #

Yupik children play during summer vacation on June 30, 2015 in Newtok, Alaska. Newtok, which has a population of approximately of 375 ethnically Yupik people, was established along the shores of the Ninglick River, near where the river empties into the Bering Sea, by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) in 1959. The Yupik people have lived on the coastal lands along the Bering Sea for thousands of years. However, as global temperatures rise the village is being threatened by the melting of permafrost; greater ice and snow melt - which is causing the Ninglick river to widen and erode the river bank; and larger storms that come in from the Bering Sea, which further erodes the land. According to the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, the high point in Newtok - the school - could be underwater by 2017. A new village, approximately nine miles away titled Mertarvik, has been established, though so far families have been slow to relocate to the new village. #
