 AMON CARTER MUSEUM: TEXAS BIRD’S-EYE VIEWS: BROWSE
Augustus Koch’s view of Brenham in 1873 shows a city that emerged from the throes of the Civil War and Reconstruction with some confidence that it would continue to prosper.
The small structures at the far east end of Sandy Street might, in fact, be the beginnings of Camp Town, a community of former slaves that grew up in the area near where the federal soldiers established their camp during Reconstruction.
Koch’s view is, in some respects, a unique historical record of the city, because fire destroyed a large part of the downtown area later in 1873.

In December of 1873 they organized a march of five thousand unemployed upon City Hall, where they demanded that the newly elected People's Party administration either provide public works jobs for the unemployed or force charitable organizations to disburse the remainder of the fire relief funds.

 SparkNotes: Reconstruction (1865–1877): The End of Reconstruction: 1873–1877
As the Depression of 1873 wore on into the mid-1870s, northern voters became decreasingly interested in southern Reconstruction.
The Depression of 1873, along with continued pressure from the Ku Klux Klan, drove most white Unionists, carpetbaggers, and scalawags out of the South by the mid-1870s, leaving fls alone to fight for radical legislation.
Northerners were tired of a decade of Reconstruction efforts and had become less interested in the South with the rise of speculation and profit-making in the Gilded Age and then the hardships of the Depression of 1873.

 Benelli 1873 .45 Colt Sporting Rifle
The Benelli/Uberti Model 1873 is chambered for.45 Colt, permitting a "carry pairing" with the Colt Single Action that was never possible before.
But for the equally famous Winchester Model 1873--which also had its birth in 1873 and remained in production until 1919--it was undeniably the.44-40 that held the reins, far outdistancing the other chamberings of.32-20,.38-40 and the rarer.22 rimfire.
Yet, I was so used to seeing the Uberti 1873 in.44-40, when I received my test gun I automatically gathered up some boxes of.44-40 ammo.

 Coin Community | US 1873-1874 Seated Liberty With Arrows Dime History
After three years of postponements, innumerable revisions and committee conferences, the Mint Act of 1873 was finally passed on February 12, 1873.
This same Mint Act was to be referred to in later years as the "Crime of `73", because it was alleged to have been passed by a sleepy Congress with no debate and little consideration.
The facts were that the value of minor coinage was independent of its actual weight in bullion, and such small denomination coins only circulated in countries where they could be exchanged for what is known as "standard money," that is, currency, silver dollars and gold coins.

 AMON CARTER MUSEUM: TEXAS BIRD’S-EYE VIEWS: BROWSE
Austin had been designated the permanent capital of the state just a few months before Augustus Koch, one of the most prolific of the itinerant city-view artists, arrived in town in January 1873, and the city was experiencing a boom.
Koch’s view showed the city from the southwest, clearly delineating Edwin Waller’s original design: the city fronts on the Colorado River between two of its tributaries, Shoal Creek on the west and Waller Creek on the east.
Perhaps he and the city fathers wanted to focus on the fact that Austin was now the permanent capital of the state.
