Posters, Stamps and a LOT more!

  Went to the post office today and found this sheet of stamps for sale.  I’ve been a long-time stamp collector, unofficially, and am a sucker for American history stamps.  I couldn’t help but grab them. If you’re into circus stuff, you can find more information about this particular set of stamps at a great USPS site located … Continue reading »

While I never thought I would be saying this, the facts are that for anyone doing … Continue reading »

Digest Anyone?

As an amateur historian, it’s easy to get into the trap of using “established” resouces in which to do our research.  Scholarly papers, donated collections, first-person interviews, these are all the first things we all think of.  However, this morning, I thought it would be a great time to discuss one of my favorite resources:  The Reader’s … Continue reading »

Exhausted? The Strange Sage of Chrysler’s Turbine Cars….

Automotive history has always been a fascinating part of American history to me. Maybe it’s because my dad was a mechanic and I’ve always been around automobiles most of my life, but whatever the cause, I’ve just finished reading a great book: Chrysler’s Turbine Car: The Rise and Fall of Detroit’s Coolest Creation.   It’s … Continue reading »

COLD & SNOW!!! BRRRR!!!

Well, it’s after Christmas and amid the crowds of shoppers looking for deals and returning unwanted gifts, a large portion of the country has been zapped with massive amounts of snow.  Being stuck in the middle of all of this, I thought it would be a great post to investigate how previous Americans dealt with … Continue reading »
