Lane County is one of the 36 counties in the state of Oregon. It is named after General Joseph Lane, Oregon's first territorial governor.

Stretching from the Cascade Range to the Pacific Ocean, the county has a total area of 4,602 square miles; roughly the size of the state of Connecticut.

I saw men and women fight
