  • The Revolutionary War

    The American Revolution was the war that started everything for the then colonies. I chose this event because it was the first sign that the United Sates should be taken seriously. These small colonies were able to band together and form an army that ended up defeating the most powerful army of the time, This was truely a monumental event in our history.
  • Louisiana Purchase.

    The Louisiana Purchase was purchased under Thomas Jeffersons time in office. I chose to add this to my timeline because this more then doubled the size of the exsisting United States. It also added to the problem with the spreading of slavery.
  • United States Civil War

    The American Civil war was the result of the long lasting debate on slavery in the country. Thousands of men were killed on their own land, brother against brother as many say. I chose this topic because this is something that we should learn from.
  • President Abraham Lincoln was Killed

    Abraham Lincolns assasination is something that many have been fasinated with ever since this happened. Lincoln was the fist president in the United States to be killed. He was killed by John Wilkes Booth who was a well known actor at the time, I chose this to add to my timeline because I feel it stands out and the story behind it intregs me.
  • The Manhattan Project

    This project is a stand out as far as the evolution in our technoloy, this was the production of the first atomic bombs. These bombs are a major factor in the United Sates coming out on top in World War II. I chose this because it affected the entire world.
  • Vietnam War

    The Vietnam war was one of the only wars in our nations history to draft kids ages sixteen and up. This was one of the only wars that was greatly unsupported by the American general public. I put this in my timeline because out of all the war that America was involved in this one had a very different affect on the people.
  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was Killed

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of this biggest contributers to equal rights for African Americans. He is most well known for his "I Have a Dream" speach. I chose this because was one of most well known people in American history. He died standing up for what he believed was right and that is something everything should live by, and for that he is an insperation.
  • Apollo 11

    This was the end of the long awaited space race between Russia and America. America became the first nation to have a man step on the moon and collect samples. This is import and stands out to me because it is a achievement that America will carry forever.
  • September 11th

    September 11, 2001 was one of the biggest days in American history siince so many were effected. This terrorist attack changed our day to day lives from airports to the war that followed.This is a stand out event to me becuase everyone in America was affected including me,
  • Osama Bin Laden was Killed

    The day that Bin Laden was killed is a day that many Americans celebrate. The man who organized the bombing of the twin towers and the death of so many Americans in the attack and the war is no longer hurting more people. This is my final event because this is a day that is never going to lose meaning, so many people were hurt due to this man.
