Used by writers "re-write history" History is a book: That we are still writing This is the story of the oldest continuously operating professional sports franchise in America. It's a story not only of great teams (the 1914 'Miracle' Braves, the 1995 World Champs), great ballplayers (Aaron, Spahn, Niekro and Murphy), memorable managers and pleasant stadiums, but also a story of heartbreaking losses and long pennant droughts. It's the story of the Braves and their ancestors — the Red Stockings, Beaneaters, Doves, Rustlers, and Bees — and their wanderings from Boston to Milwaukee and Atlanta. In a way, it's also the story of professional baseball in America.
In fact, the franchise that started as the Boston Red Stockings in the 1870s and is now known as the Atlanta Braves is the only one of today's 30 Major League franchises to have fielded a team every season professional baseball has been in existence.
Follow this overview and this section's timeline for more of the rich, sometimes warped, always colorful and truly unique story of the Braves. Work in progress....

May 12th, 1606 No signs of gold as of yet, we have come across these naked tribal men. It's almost hard to believe. These wild beasts have paint smeared across their faces. I'm attempting to sleep but living in fear of another attack by these dangerous tribal men. It's worst then what we originally thought; the tribesmen clearly do no like our presence on their land. Right now the thought of survival is looking grim each passing day as no ship from England is planned to arrive. Farewell my friends Recreating the events
