I’ll admit it. I am a confirmed fan of old “Gunsmoke” reruns on TV. I thought I had seen them all, but the other night I found one I had not seen before. The dialogue mentioned Custer’s last stand and the Battle of Adobe Walls as being in the same year, or at least, that is what was implied. Being a fan of history as well, I decided to question the shows facts. I knew that the Battle of the Little Bighorn was in 1876 but was not sure of Adobe Walls. My research found a terrific little web site simply called TimeSearch. Pick a year, a historic period, or evan a historic theme and TimeSearch will do the rest, complete with pics from Google. TimeSearch also features single-subject timelines or a picture search. TimeSearch should be on everyones favorites list.

Just so you don’t think I’m making all this up, the Battle of Adobe Walls was June 27th, 1874. That is almost two years to the day before Custer’s last stand. So ‘Gunsmoke’ had it wrong-literary license! But I learned something.

  1. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
