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.

1/21/17 - A cold day outside the Boise Capitol Building
Looking from the Capitol building, Gov. Frank Steunenberg statue in the center foreground and President Lincoln statue barely visible in the center background. Capitol Blvd. straight ahead on a cold, snowy, Boise day. Frank has seen a lot of marches, protests and rallies over the years. Democracy in action.
