Silas Cully's Tavern Tales is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant look at Nineteenth Century America through the eyes of a barkeep. Who else but the local barkeep could tell it all? Here is Silas - expounding against California statehood, chiding ladies for entering his barroom, and telling the jokes and humorous stories that are his stock in trade. Authentic food and drink recipes from 1850 taverns are also provided.

Silas Cully's Tavern Tales: Stories, Jokes, and Recipes From A Nineteenth Century Barkeeper is a lighthearted, yet accurate look at the middle of the 19th Century. It abounds with humorous stories and poignant tales of life on the American Frontier.

Bert G. Osterberg, the author, is employed at the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan and brings his unique historic perspective to the reader.

The book contains historic food and drink recipes as well as a chronology of 1850 with "Silas'" comments and observations. A must for any history buff!


"Yes, Ma'am, I pay boys more than girls. Of course, if women start getting men's wages, the next think you know, they want to vote. That would be the end of civilization as we know it."

you did so good!
Reviewed by Kenneth Lacen 5/24/2002
This is a great "first person" history of the 1850s through the eyes of a tavern owner. Mr. Osterberg writes with humor and authority. His remarks and funny and/or biting. Reading this book is to stand in a barrom in 1850 with "Silas" talking to you. I loved the recipes and the historic information.
