TriWeekly Report of September 8, 2018

Love history? Me too.
Every three weeks I send out a newsletter with the top three history stories I've come across. The most recent newsletter went out Saturday (yesterday). You can take a look at it here.
What were the three top stories?

  1. News about a long-lost city sitting UNDER Arkansas City, KS. Etzanoa was once home to over 20,000 people, and disappeared in the early 17th century. 
  2. Your Grandma's couch. Throughout the 60s, 70s, and beyond, a patterned, incredibly durable sofa in autumn tones could be found in the dens and living rooms of grannies and aunties throughout the nation. You've seen it; now learn why it seemed to be everywhere.
  3. The horrible fire at the National Museum of Brazil: it's losses and impacts.
So go ahead and subscribe--the form is in the right right column. Every three weeks, and I always include one story (like the couch) on pop culture--stories I think anyone who reads this blog would enjoy.
