U.S. History Book Review Project: Picking a Topic

Picking a Topic

Picking a Topic for U.S. History

If you get to select the book (rather than using a reading list from your instructor), here are some timelines that show significant events in American history. As you look over these and see something of interest, you can then search the ACC library catalog for it.

History 1301, U.S. History I, covers up to 1877.

History 1302, U.S. History II, covers 1877 to the present. 

America's Best History Timeline.

American History Timeline. If you're off campus, your ACC eID will give you access.
