History Rhymes is a website dedicated to nineteenth-century American and European history with a focus on the old American West, nineteenth-century Germany and Victorian Britain. It aims to provide the latest news in the field as well as to publish articles about interesting topics. The title, “History Rhymes”, comes from a quote often attributed to Mark Twain (but not proven). The quote goes as follows: “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”
