Test Yourself

A local author who writes about local history recently found a copy of a teacher's exam in a newspaper from 1889.  Take a look at the questions and see if you can handle it.  And if you've never read the story of John Bidwell, who founded my town and was involved in an awful lot of California history, check out my review and put it on your TBR pile.

I just got a copy of a new book that she helped edit; I need to read it so you can find out what it's about!

Hahahhahahahah. Oh man. I would fail at 1800s teacher. Laura Ingalls would sneer at me, and Almanzo Wilder would not take me home all tucked up warm in his sled.
