Idaho Day, is Saturday, March 4, 2017. The day commemorates the state’s seal, symbols and history. In Boise, on the weekday prior, there was a lunchtime celebration at the State Capitol, with an official proclamation and songs by school kids. The fourth-graders of Longfellow Elementary sang "Here We Have Idaho."

In honor of Idaho Day, we sat down with three Boise residents who shared their favorite chapter in Idaho history. We hear from author Cort Conley, historian Judy Austin and schoolteacher Julie Albert, who teaches Idaho history every year to public school fourth-graders.
