Digging The Past


As many of you know, I am a writer and a history buff.  One of the winners of my blog contest has a historical blog that might interest some of you.

It is called Digging The Past by writer Wesley Harris.

Here is an excerpt from one of his posts.

By Wesley Harris

Near noon on January 8, 1874, five masked men swooped down on an eastbound stagecoach about three miles west of Arcadia. While the robbers searched for valuables among the mail bags and the passengers’ pockets, the westbound coach of the Monroe & Shreveport Stage Line approached. Forcing it to stop as well, the robbers added to their bounty. The evidence points to members of the infamous James-Younger gang as the likely culprits.

Digging The Past has some great historical accounts. Be prepared to spend some time over there reading. It's worth the stop.
