This blog contains history, photos, etc. related to Idaho from the late 1800's/early 1900's. My mother, Brenda Steunenberg Richards, was born in ID. Much of it pertains to the assassination of my great grandfather, Gov. Frank Steunenberg, the trial of Bill Haywood & grew out of the 100 year commemorations of those events. Along the way I toss in a bit of the Wild West, old guns, radios, military, etc. Your comments are welcomed. If using my images, please just ASK. Thank you.

Haywood, Moyer, Pettibone are now being tried for their lives!
This is a postcard that I am moving up from the unarchived section at the bottom of the blog.
Postmarked July, 29,1907. Hand written on the front it says:
"Coeurd'Alene, Idaho, July 24th, 1907 Dear K. This is the scene of the great mining riots for which Haywood, Moyer, Pettibone are now being tried for their lives. Yours, Bill"
