Hugh Glass found his head inside the mouth of a big blond Griz, then thrown like a rag doll, ending up on the ground with a gash down his entire body, head to ankle. With Glass near death, the other hunters were going to remain with Glass until he died. Instead, they left him after a day, thinking he was sure to pass. Glass didn’t. Alone, he crawled 325 miles to Fort Atkinson and survived, only to be killed by Arikaras 10 years later along the Yellowstone. by florence

Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Born in 1866, his father was a surgeon in the Union army who suffered a leg wound at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain in Georgia in 1864. The doctor prayed to God, asking if He would spare his leg, Landis would name his next son after the place where he was wounded. The leg healed and Dr. Landis kept his word - but he dropped an “n” in his boy’s first name. by margie

This is the youngest soldier in World War I. Momčilo Gavrić lived in Serbia at the outbreak of the war. In 1916, Austro-Hungarian soldiers killed his father, mother, grandmother, his three sisters, and four of his brothers. After hearing what had happened, the major accepted Momčilo into the unit and assigned him to a soldier. That night, Momčilo showed the major where the Austro-Hungarian soldiers were and helped bombard them. At ten, he was promoted to Corporal and at eleven to Lance Sergeant. by bette

People seriously sent Josh death threats over the damn hotel thing? It was a joke. Even if the part about the hotels wasn't, Tyler's reaction was. You really think Josh wouldn't have let Tyler stay at his place if he could've? And even if he could, that sure as hell isn't any of our business. Sending f**king death threats to anyone is just plain wrong. Sending them to someone who not only has severe anxiety and likely suffered from depression, but who is also literally the nicest person ever, so nice he got the f**king tattoo and gauges to look tougher so people wouldn't take advantage of him, that's wrong on so many levels. It was a f**king joke. And even if it wasn't, it's none of our damn business. by tamera

Wild Bill Hickok is probably the most famous Deadwood resident, even though he was only in town a few short weeks. James Butler Hickok arrived in Deadwood, along with Colorado Charlie Utter and Calamity Jane, in July of 1876. He was a well-known gambler and gunslinger, participating in many shootouts before coming to Deadwood. He was killed on August 2, 1876 when Jack McCall shot him from behind while playing poker. by alta
