In response to popular demand, I'm opening this thread for members to request the Westward Ho! Project badge. This project currently lacks a Project Leader, so it is officially inactive, but there are some active sub-projects, so the badge can be helpful to identify members who are enthusiastic about this topic.
The Westward Ho! Project is a "top level" project to help tell the stories of the people who contributed to the exploration, settlement, and sometimes the exploitation of the American West (roughly defined as the region west of the Mississippi River).
There are 8 sub-projects with their own missions (but all sub-projects use the same badge):
Please post an ANSWER in this thread (not a "comment") to request a badge. In your answer, tell us what you are working on -- or hope to work on -- in the context of Westward Ho!
