This is the most complete web site about the history of Deadwood...
Much of this did not "set well" with local people controlling the big money!
(If you still want to come here), 1st read this page or Click here!
I still do a few colorful pages like the Halloween contest in Deadwood
You can also meet the Grand Duke Alexis at a Rendezvous
Those who like our family should check out our 2010 Christmas page
My quality video is in the QuickTime format, you must download the free PLAYER
(The "History" link above is a very long web page)... The "Events" button not only covers events in Deadwood, but throughout the entire hills. The "Reservations" link is more of an attempted to warn you about the problems you may have doing this. Also some direction about the most popular areas for making arrangements before coming here.
Other popular links to various characters such as Wild Bill and Calamity Jane can be found throughout these pages... (Many of the better known people from the old west have their own page. We have also included some of the better known "make-believe" stories, as well as the corrected information... also links to other web pages on these famous people).
Within these pages you will find both new and old history, some of it never before discussed out in the open... The somewhat strange history of Deadwood is a deep dark one, often somewhat tainted, and a bit spicy at times... Many of the characters from the "old days" are not truly as they seem, we will present both sides of many tales and try to explain what was actually the truth behind many beliefs and the various versions of some stories. (Much of the information is bad, this area is normally blocked by kid-watch programs)!
We also have other sites dedicated to some famous people of this day, (especially from the Deadwood area)... The latest work is being done to honor our local soldiers in Iraq. NOTE: This link has been moved, stay tuned when that war is over!
These pages are a combined effort of a number of people and their research over the last 50 years. Many links found on the history site are reported to be some of the most complete, accurate, and updated pages on Deadwood anywhere on the Internet... One can easily spend several days just getting through them once.
We are not sponsored or controlled by any "special interest" group and are not accepting any money from the casinos! We are interested in serving a fair and balanced look at all things of interest in Deadwood and we will respond to any request for a link to other pages you find that have better information or an opposite viewpoint. Also the deleting of any pictures, video, or text... All pages past this "home" page are the responsibility of DwdTV.com... All corrections will be handled through Larry by clicking at email@example.com (This page is often spammed due to overload... to make sure your message is found please send it twice in a row or put my name in the subject line so I notice it)!
About the information links... (There are also other links to be found throughout each web page).
These pages are constantly being added to, cleared, and corrected... They will never be totally complete!
The majority of this work was 25 years in the making, (some video interview work from '77 to '83 will appear in due time... most of the work done from '56 to '71 was hand-written free-lance, and all information before that was received second hand... from my grandfather, or people he trusted). Video work from about '85 until now is much better quality and more professional... almost all of it since '97 is in the 16X9 wide-screen format! The first internet work was completed in '94 and redone in '99, just before the "dot-com" crash!
After we reorganized much of our work was moved to standard windows platforms in 2003... A smaller and cleaner portion, that had received the most hits in the past, was again served in March 2004... The hits totaled less than 1/2 million the first year afterwards and later averaged only one hundred thousand a month.
That was still enough to cause those wanting to stay with the "company line" to need me eliminated from reaching you on the web. (When the cocaine problem reached our youth they saw the chance... I went after those offering it, and the bad people began to help them get rid of me instead).
If this ends things for our company here I will now be free to tell you many unbelievable terrible things that even I thought too bad to be released to the public, stay tuned...
Final correction date on many of the information pages below will be sometime before May of 2011...
GOLD: The first discovery, and other history links about the precious metal!
GUNS: What was used by most pioneers, and what they could do with them!
GUTS: The type of person necessary to be successful during this gold rush!
GIRLS: What kind of women were needed to satisfy these kind of men!
GLORY: The end result of all that has happened in Deadwood since 1876!
GREED: About the most wicked people on earth, (at the time anyway)...
GAMBLING: Then and now, (also how it has changed throughout the years)!
