Montana 1889 Facebook group
3:30 PM
Montana Historical Society (east of the Capitol)
Throughout 2019, the Montana Historical Society will host a lively, monthly Facebook conversation based on Ken Egan’s Montana 1889: Indians, Cowboys, and Miners in the Year of Statehood. We will revisit important figures out of Montana’s past such as Lone Wolf, Granville Stuart, Nannie Alderson, Louis Riel, Mary Gleim, Deaf Bull, and Charlo. We will discuss changes to the land and peoples that led up to and followed from Montana statehood. To begin this journey back through the year 1889, Egan will host an on-site presentation to introduce himself, his book, and the Facebook reading club. The kickoff will be held in the MHS auditorium on January 15 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. It will be livestreamed on YouTube and on Facebook Live, in case you are not able to attend the on-site presentation. For more information about the group and how it works, contact Pepper-Rotness at bapepperrotness@mt.gov or 406-444-9526.
