The assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 may or may not have changed the course of the nation, but it was covered in a way that would seem strange to us today. We have all kinds of connections to the 19th Century in America, and there are plenty of lessons to be learned from the people who took the time to write about their lives and the world around them.

A former NFL running back who once tried to kill 49ers QB Steve Young is in more trouble with the law.

Turns out Hillary Clinton likes Mexican food, even if nobody recognizes the Mystery Machine or its famous occupant.

Who was “C.B.?” His remains were uncovered in Flanders as Belgium prepares for the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.
