The Old West - some truth.....
Firehand over at Irons In The Fire has an interesting post about the old West, and our misconceptions about how it REALLY was.
"There has been so much crap written about that period in our history, it's sometimes hard to sort through it. From the stuff written at the time(violence sold newspapers then, too) to current movies and historical writings, you have to dig through it to try to get to facts."You can read the whole post here.
Maybe if we encourage him, this will be the start of a series of posts on this topic.
