The Old West

Often referred to as the Wild West, the Old West encompasses the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800's, and the early part of the 20th century. During this time, thousands of pioneers pushed their way westward in search of land, better lives, gold and silver, and sometimes, to escape the law. Geographically, the "Old West" generally applies to those states west of the Mississippi River.

I love to view the olden days and how life was then. The pictures and articles are wonderful. Too bad some of that way of life couldn't be bought forward to this day and age. I was a much more simple way of life then. And yet those settlers worked darn hard. Thanks for having this site available for viewing.
