  The Origin of Species - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
First published on November 24, 1859, The Origin of Species (full title On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life) by British naturalist Charles Darwin is one of the pivotal works in scientific history, and arguably the pre-eminent work in biology.
In it, Darwin makes "one long argument" for his theory that "groups" of organisms, (now called populations) rather than individual organisms, gradually evolve through the process of natural selection—a mechanism effectively introduced to the public at large by the book.
The Origin was first published on 24 November 1859, price fifteen shillings, and was oversubscribed, so that all 1250 copies were claimed by booksellers that day.

 WarCry™ Network
Daniel: As our catch phrase states, "Finally, the freedom and the tools to author your own adventure", Frontier 1859 is designed to allow all players a chance to experience an authentic role in life during the middle to latter 1800's.
This is because, as mentioned earlier, Frontier 1859 is skill and talent based, not level or profession based.
Class balancing will not be an issue with Frontier 1859 because the combat system is skill based and a weapons abilities/damage/etc do not change as they do with other games whenever their character advances in level.

 The Mail Station and the Military at Camp on Pawnee Fork, 1859-1860 by Morris F. Taylor Spring 1970
IN THE summer of 1859, Agent William Bent was apprehensive about the intentions of some of the Indians in his charge.
Given the state of communications of that day, even the most complete and fully implemented plans were subject to breakdown; the evident reluctance of higher military authority to provide sufficient protection compounded the problems faced by men in Bell's position.
A combination of circumstances doubtless explained the cumulative delay of four mails to Independence from Santa Fe in late November, 1859, [51] and the pileup of four outbound mails at Pawnee Fork awaiting an escort towards Santa Fe in early December.
