Nevada Appeal Sesquicentennial Coverage

Posted Sunday, May 25, 2008 at 9:51 AM

The Nevada Appeal has two articles about the history of Carson City today. Sue Ballew looks at the story of Billie Lynch, a black man who was a personal messenger to President Lincoln, and was in Ford’s Theater on the night he was shot. Abraham Curry later brought him to Carson City where he worked as a porter at the U.S. Mint on Carson Street. And Chris Bayer continues his story about Major Ormsby, from his moving to the new city of Carson to his death scarcely a year later.

Nevada Appeal Sesquicentennial Coverage

Posted Monday, May 19, 2008 at 1:00 PM

The Nevada Appeal had a story yesterday by Chris Bayer, about the life of William Ormsby. Chris wrote the book “Profit, Plots and Lynching“, and will be speaking at the Carson City Library on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The paper also has a guide to some of the Sesquicentennial events happening August 16th in Carson City.
