My Name Is Moses Lincoln (by BettyHT)

Summary:  This is my March 2019 Chaps and Spurs entry.  The words to be used are massacre, reconstruction, sewing, citizen, and oversight.  A new hand at the Ponderosa stirs Joe’s suspicions but what he learns is not what he expected and is far more profound and life-changing too.

Pony Joe (by Cheaux)

Summary:   Joe, eager to find something to call his own, joins the Pony Express with Adam’s help.Aside from a passing reference to Ben’s investment in the Pony Express, this story is unrelated to the Season 7 episode “Ride the Wind” which was out of sync with history.  The Pony Express existed for 18 months from April 1860 to October 1861 when Joe was 18.
