Basically brief Wikipedia summary for each event.
This book was informative and had the basic information of American history. I am a history major and realized that there were a few grammatical errors and minor issues regarding some people discussed in the book. Overall the information was basic but good. It was what I expected a book about the main 50 events of American history would be about.
More info on 9/11 maybe?
I think in some parts of this really well made book there just wasn't enough information on the bigger events let's go with 9/11 for example you did a good job on describing what happened but then it just stopped.
Perfect for a quick review of American History
I wanted to refresh what I had learned many years ago in my American History class. This was an easily accessible read that reminded me of many things that I had forgotten. It presents events in a nice overview to help you see the big picture.
