Nineteenth-century History

Research Paper

I know it’s been a long time since I have posted here and I apologize for that. I have been ridiculously busy with homework for classes and work. As of now I am working on a research paper for one of my history classes. I am writing about the decline of the British monarchy in the 19th century. So far it’s quite an interesting subject. I may be writing a few posts about British history as that is what I am taking this semester and will be taking more next semester.

Wyoming Territorial Prison in the 19th century

Wyoming Territorial Prison in the 19th century

Starting next semester, I will be beginning an internship at the Wyoming Territorial Prison Museum in Laramie, Wyoming. My responsibilities will include research, setting up and maintaining exhibits, giving tours in both English and German and translating brochures and other literature into German. I will also be working at the front desk part-time and updating and maintaining the museum’s website. I am certainly looking forward to it.

I will try to be more frugal about posting here as things start settling down.
