Nevada Appeal Sesquicentennial Coverage

The Appeal just has one article online today about Carson City’s early years, a look from Sue Ballew at how the newspapers covered the news back in the 1860s. Also, a trivia question about the Capitol dome.

There is also, in the newspaper, another article in Guy Rocha’s series about the early days of Carson City, this one concerning the intrigue surrounding the efforts to declare Carson City the state capital. But that article hasn’t appeared on the website yet. Update: It’s online now: Carson City’s stature grows quickly in late 1850s.
