July/August 2019

From the grizzled blacksmith on our cover, to the patriotic images of Nebraska in our Showcase Shots photography contest toward the back of the magazine, the July/August 2019 issue of Nebraska Life is packed page-to-page with entertaining stories and beautiful images that will make you blush over your love of Nebraska. Here is a little of what you will find and experience when you subscribe to Nebraska Life.

Modern Day Memories at Fort Atkinson

Our 10-page feature, “Modern Day Memories at Fort Atkinson,” includes Dean Slader and his volunteers reenacting the past for the benefit of future generations. Founded in 1819, Fort Atkinson was the first fort in the United States west of the Missouri River. Local residents began rebuilding it in the 1960s, and the fort today (in the community of Fort Calhoun) comes to life during living history weekends spring, summer and fall.

Platte Basin Timelapse Story

Got an insatiable appetite for the Platte River like Nebraska filmmakers Michael Forsberg and Michael Farrell? Hundreds of miles in the making, this braided prairie river has many stories to tell, but until recently, most of what the Platte was doing was unknown. Thanks to Forsberg’s and Farrell’s Platte Basin Timelapse project, dozens of cameras (including in Colorado and Wyoming) are now capturing images of this living river every daylight hour.

Sláinte, toast to Irish traditions

The Holt County community of O’Neill has been the Irish Capital of Nebraska for 50 years. No matter their lineage, residents living in the thriving community today embrace and honor their community’s Irish heritage, and celebrate it during St. Patrick’s Day.
