FYI, I added a couple of new books to the History area of the site: "A Bride Goes West (1942)" and "Fort Keogh: Cutting Edge of a Culture (1983)". Thanks Hal!

I also created PDFs for the 1988 and 1989 Branding Iron yearbooks.

More additions and improvements will be coming soon.

If you have anything to contribute, please let me know!

OK, I created a PDF for "Echoing Footsteps (1967)". Also, Hal contributed an interesting pamphlet named "Eastern Montana" from 1913. Those should both be in the History area now.

Two more additions, thanks to Hal. "Custer County Area History - As We Recall (1990)" and "Serving the Republic (1911)". You can find them in the History area.

“Serving the Republic” is the Nelson A. Miles memoir that was published in 1911.
It doesn’t have a great deal on Miles City, but the town is named after the man, so I thought we should include it.

OK, I added the following census records to the site.

1880 US Federal Census (Miles City) - both PDF and XLS format
1900 US Federal Census (Miles City) - PDF format
1910 US Federal Census (Miles City) - PDF format

You can find them in the History area.

Miles' memoirs say something like "a town was named after me" in Montana and that was that. He did not care for Miles City. It was full of saloons and gamblers and whore houses.

General Miles was a preening old peacock. Teddy Roosevelt couldn't stand him.

Miles would probably like Miles City a hell of a lot less now, with no whores.

Several more great additions courtesy of Hal - in this case, historic records concerning the Charles & Milley Brown Home, the Dan Hurt Residence, the Ismay Jail, and the Olive Hotel.

You can find them in the History area.

As mentioned before, if you have anything to contribute, just let me know!
