Montana 1889: Chat with a Montana Historical Writer

Share this:

The Revisiting Montana 1889 Facebook Group will spend July discussing Rudyard Kipling’s visit to Livingston, Clara McAdow’s pleas for women’s suffrage in the new constitution, Lizzie Fisk’s discomfort with women in public life, Pierre Wibaux’s cattle kingdom, and Samuel Hauser’s search for investors in a new mining venture. The Montana Historical Society is hosting this lively monthly conversation based on Humanities Montana’s executive director Ken Egan’s book Montana 1889: Indians, Cowboys, and Miners in the Year of Statehood. Royalties from book sales support the programs and grants of Humanities Montana.
