Nineteenth-century History

Starting Anew

There comes a time in the history of just about every blog where the author has to pen a post apologizing for an extended absence. That time for me is now. I have not made any updates to History Rhymes for the majority of the year (since January!). Much has happened in that time and it is all primarily related to my MA. The entire year has been filled with project after project related to the university and I have literally not had any time to devote to this blog. Any writings historical in nature have been produced for the university.

That being said, however, my program is finally over and I now have time and energy to devote to History Rhymes. I have a few articles in the works and many ideas for the future. I apologize for the massive delay, but I promise it will be worth the wait.

Rocky Mountain Mining Towns: Idaho Springs, Colorado

There are few mining towns of the old west which are still operational. Most mining operations were shut down for a large variety of different reasons and the towns supporting them then slowly dried up and eventually became ghost towns. Idaho Springs, Colorado, however, is one of the few which are s...

Kings of Bavaria: King Ludwig III

A long, tragic series of events brought King Ludwig III to the Bavarian throne. He was the monarch who was never destined to become king. He did not inherit it, but instead took it from his mentally ill cousin. Ludwig also saw the end of his family's 700-year rule over Bavaria.

Life in Nineteenth Century Mining Towns

One of my biggest fascinations with the Old West is with what life in a Rocky Mountain mining town in nineteenth century would have been like. It would have been a life full of filth, rough characters and hard work combined with drinking, fighting and gambling as pastimes. Of course these are stereo...
