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.

The Wild West History Association throws a Roundup in Idaho
"....For example, Bob Sobba (who worked in law enforcement for 36 years,
including serving as the chief of police in Caldwell) will give a talk
about Idaho's 'Trial of the Century' after the assassination of Gov.
Steunenberg in 1907."
Bob will also be doing a presentation on Orchard and his life at the Idaho pen. Check it out if you get the chance and send me some comments and pictures for posting on the blog.
