The Histogram[] command


Do any of you know how I could force the histogram output for two different
lists to appear starting and ending at the same x-local.

For example, I have a list of observed data points and a list of a
theoretically produced distribution.

Histogram[observed];
Histogram[theoretical];

Produces very nice plots, but one has the y-axis starting at x=-1 while the
other has its at the origin.  One also displays different number of x-ticks
(but this is a smaller inconvenience).  I tried passing GraphicsOptions to
the Show command, but some of these are not recognized.  For example

h1 = Histogram[observed];
h2 = Histogram[theoretical];
Show[h1,PlotRegion->{{xmin,xmax},{ymin,ymax}}];
Show[h2,PlotRegion->{{xmin,xmax},{ymin,ymax}}];

doesn't work?  Isn't Histogram a Graphics Object?
