1870:
October 12th
Confederate General Robert E. Lee died at Lexington, Virginia. He was sixty-three.
“Forth from its scabbard! All in vain!
Forth flashed the sword of Lee!
‘Tis shrouded now in its sheath again,
It sleeps the sleep of our noble slain,
Defeated, yet without a stain,
Proudly and peacefully.”
–Moina

1871:
The unification of Italy as a nation, no longer city states and without the major civil control of the Pope, occurred during this year. Much of this was due to the efforts of the patriot Garibaldi.

May
The Paris Commune was smashed by the French Army during “The Bloody Week.” This commune had been formed as a reaction to the potential reestablishment of the monarchy. During its suppression, over 20,000 Parisians were killed. On a side note, Paris has really had quite a slew of mob riots throughout its history!
Timeline of the Seventies

October 8th
The beginning of the Great Chicago Fire. Rumor said it was started by a cow, but rumor is, well, rumor. Three hundred people lost their lives in this fire, and damages ran up to an estimated two hundred million dollars.

November 10th
Journalist Henry Morton Stanley uttered the famous words, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume,” when he met that renown explorer in the depths of Africa. Livingstone had disappeared and was thought dead.

1874:
The Japanese invaded Taiwan this year. Their pathetic excuse was the murder of a shipwrecked seaman by the inhabitants. The Japanese withdrew their troops after the Chinese agreed to the stipulated payment.

Another huge highlight of this year was the creation of the USA Republican party elephant!

1875:
The first Kentucky Derby was held this year. It was won by – yep, you guessed it – a horse! This particular horse’s name happened to be Aristides.

1876:
March 10th
Alexander Graham Bell spilled acid on his pants. This, in itself, is not a very noteworthy incident, especially as it doubtless occurred quite regularly. However, it set off a massive chain reaction! Alexander called to his assistant, Watson. But Watson heard him through the trial telephone speaker!

The National League of Baseball was also founded this year.

June 25th
Along with all his 256 men, General George Armstrong Custer was killed in this last Indian victory. Custer’s famous last stand… not the lemonade one though.

1879:
August 2nd
Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back of the head while holding aces and eights, the Dead Man’s Hand.

And to top the decade off, this was the year Thomas Alva Edison invented a commercially realistic lightbulb and switched on the electrical revolution!

Well, this was one of those builds that's more work than fun, haha, although I actually rather enjoyed the research part. The thing is way too long, for one thing, and took up far too much space on my rather small desk, plus there are way too many minifigures! All stickers are LEGO - cut obviously. And also obviously, it's only a decade since there is nothing in the 1880s.

Quoting matt rowntRee Clever take on the category! Apparently that was a rather busy decade. Love that you included the blue jeans as it seems arbitrary and silly, much like me and my comments. It works well as a collage too, I love the overall shot with the progressive timeline. Fantastic details, clever bulb. Awesome!
Thanks Matt! There was actually a lot more I could have picked but that would have made the line interminably long!
Quoting Max Pointner A solid 3 pointer. A cohesive frame would have worked really well to tie it all together. Love the vignettes.
Thanks Max! I'm not quite sure what sort of frame would be possible, but yes, a bit more of a tie-in might have been helpful!
Quoting matt rowntRee Congrats on getting blogged! http://bricknerd.com/home/the-70s-20-2015 Well deserved! ;)
Hooray!
Quoting David Alexander Smith Educational, fun and well executed.
Thanks!
Quoting Ian Spacek I'm going with a solid 3 too. Well represented!
Thank you Ian!
Quoting Chris Phipson 4 points ~ Chris.
Thanks for the four!
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nice work, a very strong 3.
Thanks!
Quoting Caleb Walker Stellar job! Very nicely done!
Thank you!
Quoting Mark McPeek I love it, especially all the little vigs. I do think that a frame around would have helped, though. Score: 4.
Another four! Thank you!
