  1. Hi. Enjoyed your presentation of the Gadsden Purchase, Dec.30 2020, same as I enjoy all of your videos. Now I know where my cat vanishes to in the morning.
    A suggestion for new stories; maybe something on some of the lesser known “Robber Barons” of America of the late 19th century. Some one recently suggested I look at Andrew Clarke (Clarke County Nevada fame). As a Canadian I find the stories of these individual developers very interesting in comparison to the need for Government intervention for all are big projects in Canada.
