More About the Book

The information provided within the America's Best History Timeline in both the ebook and paperback was gleaned from various sources, as well as the knowledge and experience of the America's Best History staff, and should not be considered a scholarly work per se, but as a jumping off point for the reader to go into more detail about a particular topic of their interest. Don't expect footnotes or detailed analysis; that's not what the timeline is. It is, for the most part, a collection of the five most important events in the years of our history, from pre-Revolutionary War times to the present day, that can provide context to our history and information about how it unfolded.
