About this title

Synopsis:

In one convenient, user-friendly volume, The Encyclopedia of American Facts and Dates explores more than 1,000 years of American history and popular culture. Covering from the 10th century through the 20th, readers will discover all the details, dates and events from the first Norse explorers in 986 through the end of 1996. Organized in four parallel columns for each year, and chronologically within each column, the book enables readers to see the progression of events in any given field as well as get a picture of all the important events of any year. In addition, the book contains an extensive index that allows readers to find specific entries quickly and easily. With more than 15,000 entries, this unique reference belongs in everyone's home library.

Review:

Covering more than 1,000 years of American history and popular culture from the 10th through the 20th centuries, Gorton Carruth's American history encyclopedia fills an important niche on the reference shelf. Rigorously indexed and organized chronologically and by subject to tell what was happening at any given time in politics, literature, religion, and fashion, The Encyclopedia of American Facts and Dates is an exceedingly practical and accessible volume, as well as a fine trivia treasure trove. Within its 901 pages, you can learn that Snorro, son of Thorfinn and Gudrid Karlsefni, was the first child born in North America to European parents; that in 1839 Josephine Amelia Perkins was the first woman convicted of horse stealing (having been pardoned twice on account of her sex); and that Margaret Jones was executed for witchcraft in 1648, 44 years before the infamous Salem witch trials.
