Default Life in the 1800s

I am not necessarily a huge history buff, however, I stumbled upon a YouTube channel called Life in the 1800s. I am going to continue checking it out, but it is absolutely worth sharing. So far what I have come across are video and audio accounts made from people born in the 1800s. Like this confederate soldier giving his account of the Lincoln assassination the day after it happened as a POW in Maryland. https://youtu.be/yADst939VCA

To me, that is pretty neat to hear. I don't think growing up in school in the 90s and 2000's I ever imagined I would learn about an individual's personal perspective of historical events that far back. I thought I was limited only to what was in the history book at school. Y'all enjoy.

That is pretty cool.

I know it was rough times back then and my candy azz couldn't handle it in my current state, but wish I'd been born back then (or even 100 yrs earlier than I was) rather than live in this jacked up world we are in today. Technology has went too far, imo.

But, I digress... gotta go turn the a.c down a bit.

I don't have the link but there was one video of a game show I believe from the 1940's, and the nephew of Wyatt Earp was on the game show. A neat bonus - seeing game shows from almost a century ago and getting a tale of life in the 1800s. And one subject discussed was the 6666 ranch and how it got its name.

A video from that channel popped up on my youtube feed about a month ago and I am hooked. The first one I watched was from the 1920's of two civil war veterans - one Union one Confederate - talking about the war.

If you are enjoying that, you will appreciate reading Kings of Texas in the same time period about the history of King & Kennedy ranches, their stories about how they built their empires, the border area after the civil war...a brilliant book.

I'm starting another called 1861 The Civil War Awakening by Adam Goodheart...hopefully it delivers.

This reminds me of a show I stumbled upon a couple years that absolutely fascinated me. It is called Pioneer Quest and you can find it on some streaming services.

It was a Canadian reality show that featured two couples that lived in the middle of rural Manitoba for an entire year as pioneers. If they lasted one complete year they would both receive $100,000.

From planting crops with draft horses to trading goods with a local Mennonite community, it was truly eye opening how tough you had to be.

Not to mention they just happened to experience the coldest winter on record in Manitoba history. Would highly recommend!
