    Review - "Chronology" offers a fascinating series of snapshots throughout American history, including things I really haven't thought about, such as...what was life like here before the European explorers showed up? Some of the chapters are essays about specific topics or time periods, and others are the actual text of documents from our history. Even if you think you know American history, I'll bet you'll find something you didn't know, or an aspect you never thought about!" - Ruth Brown, Gettysburg Historian.
