Silver Dollar Blog - Historic Moment captured one still at a time

Oct 01, 2012

The Panic of 1873

This is a pretty cool video I came across on YouTube! It shows still pictures of historical moments one by one. Starting off with the Pony Express in 1860. The Pony Express was a fast mail service that crossed the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and the High Sierra from Missouri all the way to California. That same year we had Abraham Lincoln became the Untied States 16th president.

It goes through the The American Civil War 1861-1865, France intervention in Mexico 1861-1867, Muslim Rebellion in China 1862-1877. 

Yellowstone National Park opens in 1872. Thomas Edison invents the Phonograph in 1877, Alexander Graham Bell invents the telephone in 1876.

It didn't have any pictures of the Morgan dollar, but it did have the the panic of 1873 which was one of the predecessors to the Bland-Allison Act in 1878.  What it did have was a lot of interesting pictures in history from 1860 - 1898.
