Book excerpt: Thirty-eight illustrated essays explore the history of Helena, Montana, and the surrounding area in this second collection of the popular Independent Record weekly newspaper column. The nine historians present stories of people, places, and events, and raise questions dating from the beginning of Helena--where was that first gold strike really located? And what happened to the underground ''river of gold''?--to the devastating 1935 earthquakes that reshaped the city's appearance.

Here are the stories of the beginnings of Canyon Ferry, East Helena, Unionville, and Rimini. Longtime residents, newcomers, and visitors will find treasures throughout this anthology.

Download or read book Hidden History of Helena, Montana written by Ellen Baumler and published by Arcadia Publishing. This book was released on 2019-12-02 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Distinguished by statesmen and magnates, Helena's history is colored with many other compelling characters and episodes nearly lost to time. Before achieving eminence in Deadwood, Sheriff Seth Bullock oversaw Montana Territory's first two legal hangings. The Seven Mile House was an oasis of vice for the parched, weary travelers entering the valley on the Benton Road, despite a tumultuous succession of ownership. The heritage of the Sieban Ranch and the saga of "King Kong" Clayton, "the Joe Louis of the Mat," faded from public memory. From unraveling the myths of Chinatown to detailing the lives of red-light businesswomen and the Canyon Ferry flying saucer hoax, revered local historians Ellen Baumler and Jon Axline team up to preserve a compendium of Helena's yesteryear.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Old bridges do more than just span rivers. They provide an important historical connection between the hopes and dreams of the people who built them and those who continue to benefit from their use today. Many of Montana''s historic highway bridges are symbols of the cooperative spirit that led to economic and social stability throughout the Big Sky Country for over a century. Other bridges, such as those built during the Great Depression, are physical reminders of significant periods in American history and tell stories about the breadth of Montana''s transportation past. In addition, these bridges reflect both the best and worst in engineering techniques and serve as testaments to the science of practical bridge design, ranging from the aesthetically delightful Fort Benton Bridge to the more mundane Fred Robinson Bridge in the Missouri Breaks country. In the modern era, where many people seem to be in a hurry to get where they''re going as fast as possible, old bridges can be obsolete nuisances that need to make way for modern conveyances. There is, however, a growing group of preservationists who see them as symbols of an earlier time that are worthy of saving. Today, Montana''s historic bridges are a visible, rarely appreciated, and fast disappearing part of the state''s historic landscape. Yet the stories they tell about Montana''s complicated social history are important to understanding the dynamics of Montana''s development in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and reflect the optimism many people had, and have, for the state''s future.

Summary Book Review Montana Vigilantes, 1863–1870 :

Download or read book Montana Vigilantes, 1863–1870 written by Mark C. Dillon and published by University Press of Colorado. This book was released on 2018-10-22 with total page 716 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A history and legal analysis of vigilantism in Montana in the 1860s, from a state Supreme Court justice and legal historian. Historians and novelists alike have described the vigilantism that took root in the gold-mining communities of Montana in the mid-1860s, but Mark C. Dillon is the first to examine the subject through the prism of American legal history, considering the state of criminal justice and law enforcement in the western territories and also trial procedures, gubernatorial politics, legislative enactments, and constitutional rights. Using newspaper articles, diaries, letters, biographies, invoices, and books that speak to the compelling history of Montana’s vigilantism in the 1860s, Dillon examines the conduct of the vigilantes in the context of the due process norms of the time. He implicates the influence of lawyers and judges who, like their non-lawyer counterparts, shaped history during the rush to earn fortunes in gold. Dillon’s perspective as a state Supreme Court justice and legal historian uniquely illuminates the intersection of territorial politics, constitutional issues, corrupt law enforcement, and the basic need of citizenry for social order. This readable and well-directed analysis of the social and legal context that contributed to the rise of Montana vigilante groups will be of interest to scholars and general readers interested in Western history, law, and criminal justice for years to come. “[Justice Dillon’s] book reads like a Western. Dillon masterfully sets the stage for the rise of the Montana vigilantes by bringing alive the people who created and lived in [mining] towns. There are heroes, villains, shady characters, and more than a few politicians, businessmen, lawyers and judges. What sets Dillon’s book apart from historical texts and fictional tales is that he provides legal analyses and explanations of the trials, sentences, due process and procedures of the day . . . And shed[s] grisly light on the details of the hangings. Dillon’s unique background as an attorney and judge and his downright dogged research are what makes this complex story so engaging. The prose is clear, crisp and gets to the point. . . . The book is satisfying because it answers contemporary nagging questions about the law regarding the vigilantes and the hangings.” —Gregory Zenon, Brooklyn Barrister “Dillon’s analysis of the vigilantes of Bannack, Alder Gulch, and Helena in Montana Territory is the most detailed, insightful, and legally nuanced yet produced. . . . This book is a model for historians to follow when dealing with 19th-century criminal proceedings. Establishing historical context includes examining the laws in books as well as the law in action.” —Gordon Morris Bakken, Great Plains Research

Book excerpt: Drives this breathtaking did not come easy. Cruising down Montana's scenic highways, it's easy to forget that traveling from here to there once was a genuine adventure. The state's major routes evolved from ancient Native American trails into four-lane expressways in a little over a century. That story is one of difficult, ground-breaking and sometimes wrong engineering decisions, as well as a desire to make a journey faster, safer and more comfortable. It all started in 1860 when John Mullan hacked a wagon road over the formidable Rocky Mountains to Fort Benton. It continued until the last section of interstate highway opened to traffic in 1988. Montana Department of Transportation historian Jon Axline charts a road trip through the colorful and inspiring history of trails, roads and superhighways in Big Sky Country.

Book excerpt: Earth: An Alien Enterprise focuses on unpublished or little-known contacts with aliens, the infiltration thereof, and Earth's top-secret liaison programmes. This fascinating new edition tells the story of contact between aliens and humans from all across the globe, dating back to 1932, including meetings with military personnel and American presidents such as Eisenhower and Kennedy. For the first time, a former member of MI6 reveals her conversation with Neil Armstrong at a NASA conference, when he confirmed that there were "other" spacecraft on the Moon when Apollo 11 landed in 1969. Further evidence included in this book are genuine photographs of aliens and their craft, NATO special forces shown film of a crashed alien craft and survivor, and, perhaps most sinister, injured aliens cared for by military personnel in the US and UK... Earth: An Alien Enterprise forces us to consider carefully the evidence and data that has stacked up over the years and to ask ourselves the perennial human question: are we alone in the universe?

Download or read book Frontier Soldier written by William Frederick Zimmer and published by Montana Historical Society. This book was released on 1998 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this remarkable journal, an observant and opinionated cavalry private offers an inside look at a soldier's life during the Indian Wars of the 1870s. One of the few enlisted men to keep a diary, Private William F. Zimmer participated in the closing campaign of the Great Sioux War. Later, under the command of Colonel Nelson A. Miles, Zimmer fought at the climactic Battle of the Bear's Paw Mountains, the battle that led to Chief Joseph's famous surrender. Frontier Soldier expands our understanding of military dynamics during the Indian Wars and offers an honest view of army life from the perspective of the rank and file.
