    and many more!

    You'll learn about fashion, politics, sports heroes, famous inventors, Wall Street financiers, railroad expansion, buffalo extinction, Indian resettlement, Civil Rights, union organization, urbanization, the music of the times, and much, much more!

    Through the use of live re-enactments, rare historical photographs and drawings, and award-winning photography you'll be amazed, amused, entertained and educated about many little known facts and some life changing events that have become part of the foundation of our society today.

    As a bonus feature, we also present an archival documentary film about the life of Alexander Graham Bell, his work with the deaf and the invention of the telephone!
