T’is the middle of the month and time for some juicy 19th century news and gossip! I have aggregated eight articles for you, Dear Readers, from around the world wide web (does anyone still call it that, these days??). Perhaps, because it is not quite the 15th, which is precisely the middle of the month, there did not seem to be much fascinating news in August, as there had been in the months past. However, I edited the more entertaining tidbits I could glean; re-enactments, beer, steampunk, and bizarre literature, because honestly, who does not enjoy such randomness?
- A refreshing change of wars; reenacting 1812.
- To market, to market, to buy phat house; jaw-dropping custom-built Victorian for sale.
- For them moonshiners, you know who you are . . .
- Real-ly weird titles of 19th century books; more of a mouthful in oddness!
- Not fitting in; a whole different kind of tragedy
- Steampunk Picnic, need I say more?
- Kicking it with The Knick; the next 19th century awesomeness to come to television
