Tom Thumb Came to Ann Arbor in 1861

Well knock me on the ass and call me Sally! Ann Arbor hosted Tom Thumb in 1861! At the cool looking Hangsterfer’s Hall (SW corner at Main and Washington). He was going to ride in his miniature carriage from Huron and Main. That’s freaking awesome. You do you, old timey Ann Arbor!

Other exciting things happening in 1861:

  • A dude got a card maker and was selling Cards! Cards!! Cards!!!
  • The Argus wanted its money. It was not playing anymore. It didn’t actually come out and say “bitch betta have my money”, but that’s what it was thinking.
