Description

Margaret Wallin tells how her father moved to Miles City, Montana, in 1884 working for the railroad, with her mother following in 1892. Wallin describes growing up on a ranch outside of Rosebud, Montana, attending school, and spending time with friends at chaperoned dances. She recalls attending college and her experience with other college students. Wallin reminisces about meeting, dating, and marrying her husband, having children, and working in their family’s general store. She talks about historical political movements such as women’s suffrage, describes the women who worked for the Rosebud Courier, and recounts her fear of Native American conflict after the struggles between white settlers and the Cheyenne Indians.
