workhouse in Victorian England I've read so many conflicting stories on workhouses. I have a feeling that the truth is, like in anything, it all depended on who ran them and what type of person they were. It sounds like most were pretty awful.
Charles Darwin: (1809–1882) English naturalist whose On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) and The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871) offered an evolutionary understanding of the development of life on earth, challenging conventional interpretations of creation and inviting whole new ways of thinking of living beings, humanity, and God through process, system, and change. Darwin was a deacon in the Church of England. (April 19)
