I'm blogging tomorrow (August 7th) at Seduced by History on How Waitresses Fed The Western Expansion. It's on the Harvey Girls who were immortalized in the MGM movie of the same name but who really did help fuel the expansion west. The blog is giving away books to some lucky winner and here's how to enter:
Seduced by History Blog, http://seducedbyhistory.blogspot.com/, is hosting a month-long contest in August. One winner will receive a ‘basketful of goodies.’ All you have to do is check in on each blog during the month, look for a contest question to answer and September 1-5, 2011 send in your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org .

My question is: Who starred in the MGM film The Harvey Girls and made famous the song On the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe? Hint: you can find it on the movie trailer included in the blog posted on August 7th at http://seducedbyhistory.blogspot.com/
