    Any good Westerns set on the West Coast?

    I've had an itch for a novel or film that has a decent historically accurate portrayal of life in any of the three west-coast states during the 'Old West' era (for my purposes 1840s-1900s). I don't mind if the plot itself is a work of fiction, just as long as they nail the feel and history of...

    The RN and Frwipe out Guderin's tin tanks along the coast. Brtian reinforces Dunkirk.

    Why didn't Spain colonize Eastern Coast of United States?

    How did they miss this area if it's the one the closest to Europe geographically? And how did England manage to establish themselves there without being attacked by Spain? Why didn't the Spaniards try to expand north from Florida?

When merchant ships, missionaries etc. came close to a countries shores in such, could they just sail right up and dock or did countries have pretty good naval defenses? How did ships and their crew...

    After if, after the U.S. victory in the Mexican-American War, the U.S. government decided to extend the Missouri Compromise line to the Pacific coast? Would this have prevented the U.S. Civil War? Any thoughts on this? For reference:

    City states and empires in the Swahili coast

    What were some of the lesser known nations that were established on the Swahili coast. Of course I know about Kilwa, Pate, Mombasa, Malindi and Sofala but I feel that those are talked about too often when we discuss Swahili history (rarely!). I've been reading the Pate Chronicle recently and it...

    Who really ruled the Swahili Coast?

    Some people say the cities were founded and ruled by Persians or Arabs, others say they were indigenous creations(this much is true) and that they were ruled by Africans. Am I correct in saying that foreign traders to Swahili lands were assimilated into society and intermarried into the local...
