Abstract:The article considers the main aspects of everyday life in Tyumen during the Civil War. The life of common people in unusual hard conditions at the background of socio-political and socio-economic events is analysed. The year of 1918 was the time of polycracy; it turned into anarchy and total criminality for the Tyumenians. The authorities were unable to cope with the problems of the revolutionary time. The activity of some people is estimated (V.I. Shebaldin, the Bolshevik commandant; Doctor Lewis, the head of the American hospital in Tyumen; Florence Farmer, who worked as a nurse at the Red Cross). The reliability of the information introduced into scientific use is confirmed by other sources.
