 Life magazine covered the war with more tenacity and focus than any other magazine on earth.

Awakenings: Little Ice Age: Wine-making, Beer & Stradivarious

Awakenings: Little Ice Age: Wine-making, Beer & Stradivarious | Traveling Through Time | Scoop.it

While a potpourri of information exists concerning the "Little Ice Age," interestingly enough are the effects this age had on wine-making, beer and the master violin, the Stradivarious. Out of this period of gloom and doom extending from the early 14th to the middle of the 19th centuries (approx. 1350 - 1850) came incredible benefits.

Marilyn Armstrong's insight:

The little ice age is one of those periods of time that is exceptionally important historically and culturally, but barely known to anyone who isn't an acual history buff. Starting in the 1300s along with the Plague, it changed the face of Western Civilization, forcing nations to create central government for the first time. It makes fascinating readin!

Awakenings: Are we there yet?

Awakenings: Are we there yet? | Traveling Through Time | Scoop.it

On the trail again. . .

 

Do you suppose the children of the early pioneers questioned along the way "Are we there yet?" Every five minutes a repeat of the refrain, "Are we there yet?" An ever nagging, whiny "Are we there yet?",  "Are we there yet?",

"Are we there yet?"

Marilyn Armstrong's insight:

If you think a long car trip with the family can be trying, imagine a trans continental wagon train with the kids.  My questions: would anyone arrive in the West still sane? Maybe this accounts for the violence of the Old West. It was that trip in the wagon train with all those children ...

It is very doubtful had this question been asked that anyone would have dared to ask it a second time! What do you think?

Marilyn Armstrong's curator insight, January 27, 2013 9:25 AM

Think how MANY times the kids could ask "Are we there yet" on an endless journey in a covered wagon. Is it any wonder there was a high murder rate in the old west? By the time they got there, they were all ready for a padded room.

Awakenings: Shootout at the OK Corral

Awakenings: Shootout at the OK Corral | Traveling Through Time | Scoop.it

This Day in History: October 26, 1881

 

Cowboys, Tombstone and Wyatt Earp were destined to collide and by the spring of 1881, it was apparent they were already on that collision course. The most famous gunfight showdown in history featured thirty shots fired in thirty seconds that left three cowboys dead along with Virgil and Morgan Earp wounded.

 

I don't know why this isn't a national holiday. This is big. This is HUGE. Gigantic!!
