|I need to rewatch this...|
The Little House books are ALL about history. And I'm a history buff! So here are some of my favorite historical moments mentioned in the Little House books!
|Robert the Bruce|
(no offense to any particular Scottish reader though! I mean, idk, it might have been a bad economic discussion but I'm American so I'm all like FREEDOM!)
*ahem* Back to history, the US is mentioned in the Martha books. I think I recall something about Kentucky and then the War for Independence. It did take place around the same time. I love when I get a bigger view of history around the world and country. Sometimes I get tunnel vision and only think about one event at the time, but in reality, they all sort of intertwine!

Another Ashley fun fact: The President during 1812 was James Madison. I played his wife Dolly Madison in kindergarten for my graduation program :D
|Melissa Gilbert was adorable!|
|First run of a trolley car in San Fran|
As for the movements, I don't agree AT ALL with socialism, but now is not the place for that debate. I DO like the opening up of jobs for women in the early 1900s. For Pete's sake, thanks to those women, I can literally have whatever career I want as long as I work hard and it's what God has for me! (Y'all know where I'm coming from here #NotAFeminist) So I enjoyed seeing the role of women as telegraph operators and real estate agents. It was also interesting and ultimately devastating to see how Paul did not want Rose to work! nooooooo
Well, there's your American history lesson for the day! What are your favorite historical moments in Little House?
