Local author's new history blog aims to bring past to life
A new blog, "Chronicles of the Comstock," that discusses historical topics pertaining to Virginia City and the Great Basin, is now available for viewing online.

Created by Northern Nevada author and historian Dennis Cassinelli, the weekly blog includes topics ranging from silver mining in the Comstock to the early Italian ranchers of Dayton, to the Virginia City fire of 1875.

The blog is available by logging on to Cassinelli's Web site at Click on the "Chronicles of the Comstock" link on the menu at the left. A new article is scheduled to appear each Sunday.

Sort of a blog. More like a plain old web site with regular articles. Interesting though.
